Where were you

when I most needed you?

I was innocent and pure.

You ruined my childhood memories.

I can never forget the feeling of being alone.

I couldn’t talk to anyone but you

and you still didn’t help me.

I slowly gathered anger

and that’s what made me stronger.

I stopped believing in you because you never did anything to stop this madness.

I had to pretend that nothing happened to finally live like a normal person.

But I’ll never forget when you left me alone.
