You told me that I’m worthless
Since I asked for it
Since I started it all
You held me down
Spat lies to my face
You had power I couldn’t fight
But I lived
I’m growing stronger than you

What compels you to commit evil?
The answer I’ve found is what you fear the most
Man up and listen
Come and get it
Fight me
I dare you to

You thought I could fix you
A grown man turned to a teenage girl
A virgin
You thought I could fix your misery
Wake up, I became just as miserable as you are
And you?
Are you truly happy now?

You’re pathetically unhappy
You’re hopelessly unsatisfied
You wanted the power you could never earn for yourself
The power that nobody ever wanted to give you
I could see it past your masked face

Where’s your dignity?
Where’s that glitter of satisfaction you were looking for?
Where’s that sick connection you so badly wanted to tear out of me?

This body isn’t yours to play with
It’s not firewood to burn for pleasure
It’s not a toy to break and throw away
This body belongs to a human
It belongs to me
Somebody lives in here

Yet even after you miserably tried to, this body couldn’t be broken
I may be falling apart
Pieces of me may have broken away
But I am not broken
In the end you are the one to pity
Because I know how to fix myself
I love myself
I love my life
I’m sorry that you don’t

You weren’t strong enough to take control of your own life
Instead you seized mine

This body isn’t a toy to play with
It’s not an empty lifeless shell
Somebody lives in here
I live in here
It’s sad that you were too miserable to figure that out for yourself.
