I Confess

I confess
That for years I looked up to you
You were once everything I wanted to be
There was nothing I wouldn't do to make you proud

I confess
That now that I am wiser
I see that you have become everything I hate
I see that you care more about your power than my happiness

I confess
That pleasing you once made me weak
Afraid of my own shadow
Afraid to make a life for myself

But most of all, I confess
That I can now say that I am allowed to set myself free
I have broken down my own walls that you taught me to build
And I will not let the anxieties I carried for you hold me down

Lastly, I confess
That you were toxic to me, but
At the same time I must thank you
For the pain you have caused me, has made me invincible
