I can never heal when you constantly remind me of my past

Living in an unhealthy environment,

Where sometimes I’d sleep with a hungry stomach

I could never recover because my father abandoned me,

And yes, my mother was a drunkard and a very abusive mother

On the other side of the story,

My aunts and uncles were ashamed of me

And didn’t want me close

I was called a thief, a curse, an idiot, you name it

When everything went wrong, I was the problem

So yes, I’m still holding on to my past because I cannot forget or let go.

Because I believe that my past and my flaws made me,

They describe me

I can never heal
