Did You Know That......

WAIT HOLD UP......WAIT

can you hear me now

or were you pretending to know how

or pretending not to hear me

cause I remember clearly

when I was begging and pleading

for you to save me

you wasn't there.

 

WELL SINCE YOU WENT TONE DEAF

I'LL SHARE WITH YOU THE THINGS THAT SEEMED

RIGHT BUT ACTUALLY TURNED LEFT.

 

Did You Know That......

I've been abused and touched so much

that I can't erase the pain that 

I obtained when I was a child

that nearly drove me insane.

 

Did You Know That......

my own blood forced me in ways

I can't explain, feeling like I was chained

not by material but by words like

I'll tell or I'll beat

so I laid there, mouth close, and when

all was said and done, fell asleep.

 

Did You Know That......

I was talked about, teased, picked

on and on about the outside of me,

when you see, I knew I was ugly. 

The times when I was pressured

to look impressive to my peers

were always my ideas, but you see,

in reality and all actuality

I WAS BEAUTIFUL

I just couldn't see it.

 

Did You Know That......

I'm quiet for a reason

and not just cause it's pleasin'.

I always felt lonely and terrified.

You should have seen the tears I cried,

heard the times I lied, or wanting to die

thinking it was better to commit suicide.

 

AND......

 

Did You Know That......

I learned from all of this

and I don't miss the obstacles

standing straight ahead cause

I look forward and not back

at the situations the had cause me

pain and devastation. And, for this reason,

 when hurt arrives and I began to break down and cry

I remember that I've been through

the rough, I'm strong, I'm tough

and I get back up wiping my eyes

ready to make a comeback!

 

I BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW THAT!
