We allow people to hurt us. We have a choice to stop it but for whatever shitty reason we don’t stop it.
We have the power, option or choice to fight back, to stop it yet sometimes we just allow it to happen.
And this poem is dedicated to each and every person that, like me, allows people to hurt them. And I am here, to tell you to recognise your power and stop it.
You deserve better.

The truth is I allowed you to hurt meNot just youI allowed everyone to put me downI allowed people to control meIn the name of loveI allowed people to make me cry tearsbehind closed doorYou know,so that they don’t feel bad for harming meI allowed thisBecause somewhere down belowUnder the sheet of bravery and strengthI thought I deserved itI believed I deserved to be in painI thought I deserved to cryBut I didn’t.
I never did.But it’s okay,Now I knowNow I know thatI deserved so much more
I have tasted the mud on the groundSo I am ready to fly above the skyAnd the fact that I knowI won’t ever allow you or themto hurt me againTakes away your power over meAnd helps me sleep well at night.
