I was a little brat.

I threw tantrums.

I hit, bit, and scratched.

I didn't care about others.

I only thought about myself.

I loved myself.


I am alone.

I isolate myself.

I keep away from those I hurt.

I am afraid of being hurt.

I am ashamed of what I was.

I hate myself.


I will be better.

I will be strong.

I will forgive myself,

And I will move on.
