I'm a wreck
But only because you wrecked me

I'm a mess
But only because you messed me up

I'm broken
But only because you broke me

And still you say you're helping

Because to you, I am just another of your case-load
You don't have time for me, or what I think of all this

But I have time for me
So listen

You have broken more than you have fixed
You have hurt me more than I can put into words

And just because I'm in your "care"
Doesn't mean you've cared about me

Just because I have a number
That does not mean I am a number

I am not a number
