You Weren’t There

Don’t act like you know.
Don’t think you’ll ever understand
or know the full extent of my pain
because you don’t know
anything about the way I feel
or the things I have endured.
You just don’t

no matter how much you wish
you were there to protect me,
the truth is that you weren’t there.
I was alone.
There was no one
brave enough
to protect me from them

I was stressed because of them.
I was angry because of them.
I was resentful because of them.
I was depressed because of them.
I didn’t know who I was because of them
I wanted to die because of them

so don’t act like you know
don’t act like you’ll ever understand
or know the full extent of my pain
because you don’t know
anything about the way I feel
or the things I have endured
while I was in their care.
