Poetry – You’re the Reason

You’re the reason I am scared,
You’re the reason no-one cares,
What happens to me
Because they can’t see
That you’re the reason why.

You’re the reason I can’t sleep,
You’re the reason that I keep
My head down, mouth shut,
And I’m a wreck, but
Everyone blames me.

I’m so unreasonable, unfair.
Just a piece of scum that doesn’t care
Whether I hurt you
They don’t have a clue
So yeah, they take your side

But none of that makes you right, you know
And it doesn’t mean I have to toe
The line that you’ve set
I know you forget
But this call is mine to make

‘Cause this is my life, not your’s, not theirs’,
These aren’t decisions that we share
So cry your fake tears
Make me sick with fear
We both know you’ll never win.

You’re the reason I am scared,
You’re the reason that I dare
To stand up, speak out;
Yes, please have no doubt
You’ve made me learn to fight

You’re the reason I am strong
I know you’re the one that’s wrong.
You can’t bully me,
That’s my victory,
Because you’re the reason why.
