The pain of shame

How am I supposed to sit in so much hurt and pain
when you said you loved me enough
to give me your last name
But you have caused me so much hurt and shame
through all this hurt and pain
I being the woman I am having to speak
to the hurt and broke woman inside of me
leaving no illusions
that I will gain a greater strength
through what was and what will no longer remain
I stand in strength I stand in hope I stand in love
because the war you designed to defeat me
has only came and strengthened me.
