I have learned

“Sometimes, the world gets too loud
And instead of muting others
I only mute myself –
Haven’t I already learned how to shout?

If I get dizzy, I must retreat,
Go back to safe and sound,
I have got to take care of myself now,
No matter how you say I might break our bond.

Love is understanding –
Have you ever listened to me?
Friendship is supporting –
Did you ever care about me?

Now, I fight back and scream,
This time you won’t win,
I have learned to appreciate peace
And putting myself first is now gold to me.”
