Isaiah Nov 2013

love is hard,
so tear stained faces
and dreams crushed beneath a falling sky
are not worth your time.

to experience screaming silence
and fingers that caress the world
and not you;
truth be told
put your trust in someone
      different.

pray that the path you tread upon
not be knocked from underneath you
because the harsh reality is
it will be, if you still choose the man
with the cold blood
that courses through his veins.

   sadly, coldness is all too familiar
    to you
     and it's what you like the
                                    most.

When you were heartbroken
I showered you with affection
I gave you all of my love
I allowed you to forget about all the bad
And start loving your life again

When you felt worthless
I made you feel confident
I reminded you of your beauty
I got you to feel sexy
And start loving yourself again

But what you did to me
Was something much different
You drained me of all my love
Made me feel unwanted by you
My efforts were never truly reciprocated
And you gave me up like I was nothing

You made me hate my life
You made it impossible for me
To wake up in the morning
Much less do anything else
You made me hate myself

You shouldn't let people mistreat you, no matter how big of a person they are, no matter the gender, no matter the age,
note to self: (IN ORDER TO GET RESPECT TO HAVE TO DEMAND IT).

I gave in
They yell at me
They call me boney
They call me a anorexic
They tore my heart
But this toilet healed it
They knocked me down
They told me to die
They said I'm no good
But my mama tell me to eat more because honey you're getting smaller!
How can you stand tall when the world shuns you down?

SATAN'S GIRL Nov 2014

Is it wrong to feel mistreated?
To never be accepted?
I believe there's something wrong,
and I'm trying to stay strong.
But I'm not sure if I can deal with this anymore or any less.

Overcame just about everything in life

Mothers death was the first
Raising five younger siblings
Clothing Bathing Cooking and so much more
With God I stood strong. I was only 10 years old.

Fathers abuse was second
He really showed me what wasn't love but I felt in my heart I was showing grace by understanding his frustration over his deceased wife.
The beatings (Slaps Kicks Punches Abandonment). The Blood. The sadness.
His loud threats. Words that were mistreating. The pain.

Yet I love this man but can't find respect for him.

Relationships
Started off as not caring for nobody.
As I matured into this woman I started to want this thing called Love.
I was afraid because I felt I didn't know how.  
Come to find, that I love and love well but I'm receiving a cycle of being mistreated..

I'm still standing  Strong

I gave in
They yell at me
They call me fat
They call me a pig
They tore my heart
But this chocolate healed it
They knocked me down
They told me to die
They said I'm no good
But my mama tell me to stand tall
How can you stand tall when the world shuns you down?

They Say, We are only human!
They Say, We are only human!
They Say, We are only fucking human!
Human wasn't the one that took my innocence!
Human wasn't the one that left me confused, hurt damaged on the cold floor.
Human..?! we make mistakes.
Somewhere in the depths of my soul tell me it wasn't a mistake.
Human made you how you are today. A strong and outspoken woman, the type of women that won’t allow someone to step on you.
The women that will tell yourself “ I deserve Fucking better !”

Its  like any other day
I get up and brush my hair like any other day
I put on my bravest face  here I go
I enter the school, oh look here come my friends
The ones I thought I could trust to the very end
They smile in my face like nothing's wrong
But Im the one sitting there
Pure and strong when their faces long
When there hearts are broken because their boyfriends played
Them like games with tokens why aren't they true with me
Why can't they tell me?!?!
Why arent they there when I want my life to end I go home
Everyday crying my eyes out because I'm getting hurt left and right
Day & Night
But Hey!
Lucky me Every other day I'm happy like I just hit the lottery!!

I'm just writing how I feel sometimes not all the time I have a family who loves me and friends too don't feel bad

Trampled, yanked from their roots, strewn across the dirt;
A single, beautiful rose lay, treated as lowly as the soil beneath,
Loses sight of its true worth and perfection,
Amongst the several other damaged "objects".

Used and abused in manners undeserved, yet she still perseveres.

Replanted, freshened, and dusted off, she stands erect.
Portraying beauty and elegance, others do not see the damage;
Yet it is visible to me, as clear as day are the harsh conditions endured.

And so is her strength, to bear another day.
And so is her worth, deserving of more than the world can offer,
Or that I can muster; I'll try my hardest to give her everything.

Blair Winters Apr 2015

You are born blank.
An untouched piece of paper, no scribbles, no crossed out letters
Just blank
And whilst you're living your life
This paper will be crumpled, ripped and mistreated
But please, always remember
Paper can be smoothed out, there is a such thing as tape
And you will meet those who treat you like an untouched piece of paper

Hush little baby
Stop crying now
Mama’s well trained
I will show you how.
Lock your feelings up inside
Don’t let them out until you’ve died.

Stop little baby
Don’t you feel!
Keep your soul
In a heart of steel.
Promise Mama that you won’t.
Love breaks everyone’s heart if you don’t.

Sleep little baby
That does the trick
Crying all day
Can make you sick.
Nobody like a kid who cries
No one will come to sing you lullabies.

Good little baby
Never says a word.
Quietest baby
I have ever heard.
No one would ever guess
That inside you are a mental mess.

Hush little baby
Stop crying now
Mama’s well trained
I will show you how.
Lock your feelings up inside
Don’t let them out until you’ve died.

I let myself get ran over .
mistreated .
abused .
why?

I tell myself it's alright ..
it's not that bad.
pulling needles and screws from my chest and hands ..
glass embedded in my foot.
" I'm okay "

love isn't supposed to be like this...
I shouldn't be treated like I'm second to anyone.
and he knows...
he doesn't care.
no matter how much he tells you he misses you and he swears..
it'll be different next time.
next time.

one day there won't be a

next time .

one day you'll look up and I'll be gone.
like you've wanted all along .

like I've should've done all along .

and I'll be free falling .

I'm getting there .

I'll be happy to say..

i am no longer coming back .
