They Think

They think I don't know
They think I don't see
They call me these names and attach them to me
I try to shake them off
I try to get away
But the names they give me always seem to stay
I sit in the corner
I sit in my shame
The words that they say cloud in my brain
The lies that they give me
I have now come to believe
I am just a shadow
Of the person I now can't see
I became what they wanted
What they told me to be
They thought I didn't know
They thought I didn't see
