You don’t own me 1 was written out of the depths of my heart as inspired by the decision I made to live life to the fullest despite and breakthrough all I was going through. While, You don’t own me 2 is the 2nd part of this poem which I started in 2016 during one of the most depressing times of my life.
About a year later, You don’t own me 2 speaks of the results of that decision and gives a peep into the journey so far.
YOU DON’T OWN ME
Piercing deep, heart to back, head to toe
Ripping apart every nerve of strength
Screaming so loud with such quiet echoes
Pain, yes u’re named this time
Pain, I’m not afraid of you anymore
Pain, your cuts sting but i’ll live on
Pain, a word that doesn’t describe you well enough
Pain, a disaster ever lurking to roar
Pain, a voracious chameleon refusing to die
Pain, we’ve come this far but I’l never give up
Pain, you’ve won my enemies and stolen my friends
Pain, you’ve driven deeper using my foes
And hit harder using my friends as blows
Pain, your lies are real but never true
Your cuts scar but not eternally
Pain, no matter how smart you play,
We both know you’ll never win
Cos you don’t own me, He does.
