She became

What you wanted her to be




And yet still she wasn’t enough for you.

So you punished her and did all you could to break her spirit.

She fought for so long to stay strong.

But sometimes she was too tired to keep up the shield that protected her all her life.

And she would grow weak and start to believe what you had said about her all this time.

But, after a couple of days, she would grow strong again.

And your words would fall to deaf ears.

As she knew the lies of your words

She hoped soon to be free of your cruelty and to live in peace.
