Let me be me


I'm tired of being a lie , I'm tired of being sacred and ashamed.
Sacred that you'd see and reject me instantaneously.
I'm tired of using silence and self pity to survive.
I'm Sacred of being insignificant and pathetic just like you said.
I want to be free .
I'm tired of being a lie , I'm tired of being scared and ashamed.
I don't want to be in pain anymore , I want to be able to be me.
Please let me be me
Let me be free.
I'm Sacred of you seeing me and seeing the flaws inside and outside.
I don't want to hide these flaws,
I can't seem to escape or accept them.
So just please at least let me be me.
Don't shame me , don't ask me .
Please don't ask, I can't tell my Story again and again.
Reopening unhealed wounds will only prevent it from heeling, don't get fooled by these scars .
I'm not heeled yet,
So just please let me be,
I'm tired of being ashamed and scared and being pathetic , just like you said.
I'm begging you to stop reminding me of the incurable flaws I possess,
I'm tired of armouring myself,
So please Just please let me be,
Don't shame me, don't ask me how I got these scares, don't remind me of the flaws I'll never be able to forget.
Don't pity me , please don't pity me
Sympathy only makes it worse reminding how helpless and how powerless I am.
So please let me be .
Don't shame me , don't ask me don't make me the pathetic she called me.
Let me heel,
I don't need your help but I also don't need your scorn,
Don't look at me, don't advise me , I know , I see ,for i'm not blind.
Please let me be me.
I'm not asking you to accept me or to stay with me but I'm begging you to leave me , leave me be.
Please let me be.
Because I'm tired of being ashamed and scared for something I didn't do , stop , stop making me feel like a criminal I never intended to be.
I swear I'll be out of your way if it bothers you , but please don't look at me like that because then you remind me of how it bothers me
It makes me want to hide and to crawl into a hole and to never be seen again.
Please let me be me.
It's a battle you won't know , I won't wish it upon anybody but let my silence and me be Alone , don't ask me where I got these scares or how ?
I've not heeled yet .
So just please let me be.
I'm tired of being scared and ashamed , I swear I'm not a criminal but how could I tell you without tearing open my unhealed wound ?
Don't be fooled by these healed scars
I'm stills healing so don't break me , don't look at me like that.
Please let me be.
I'm tired of being armoured , I want to lower down my sheath it's been a long day too long to be able to defend myself from your words like swords.

Be kind , please be kind for I might never be healed but you are you fresh untainted and beautiful without a scar so please be kind , be gentle for I might not be able to shelter myself from your words that can shatter my heart.

As when you leave me alone with your words like swords and my unhealed wounds I see myself, it hurts even more.
So please let me be me,
Don't ask me where I got these scars or how,
Just please let me be me.
Let me be me.
