Stronger Than Steel

Most people call me crazy,
If they only knew.
I am the way I am today,
Because of what I went through.
I never knew my sister or mom,
Never met my brothers or dad.
Foster home after foster home,
Was the only "life" I had.
The abuse, it made me hate myself,
The torture so unreal.
The anger and rage I felt for myself,
Taught me NOT to feel.
I was only 6 years old,
The first time I tried to die.
They stuck me in a hospital,
But even there I tried and tried.
I was put into a final home,
Age 7 was when I broke.
This home is what did me in,
It's what made me choke.
The abuse was worse than ever,
Every night I lay restrained.
My young body open for whoever,
But I was numb to the pain.
This went on for years,
The sickening ordeal.
But now I am 26,
And Stronger than steel.
