Poetry

Silently Yours

“You see, I am more than
what you created. I am loved.”

I spent years becoming
the thing you wanted.
Conforming to your
every whim.
Trying to be
the good girl
you wanted me to be.
Silent.
Voiceless.
Yours.
And I’ve spent years
trying to unlearn
everything you ever
taught me.
You see, I am more
than what you created.
I’m more than you
wanted me to be.
I am loved.
Instead of keeping
me small and scared,
I’ve grown up.
And though I still
have a long way to go,
I am not your little girl.
I was never yours to keep.

I was never supposed to be
your victim.
