I AM..

I am not who I thought was

I have done things without cause

I thought I'd be smarter

But I have been a martyr

Simply standing for what is right

No longer having friends in my life


I thought I would be the best

Have a life without mess

Trying to make it each day

Make it each day in some way

But life got harder

Expectations got higher


I thought life would be perfect

And everything would be worth it

But I got bruises and pains

I have been tied up by chains

But with the past and burden 

I was given pardon


I am wrecked

But I am perfect

I am ashamed

But I am reclaimed

I was wrong

Because I am strong
