My Own Home

“And I have everything I need.
Because I am my own home.”

I may look like
I’ve been through hell,
because I have.
So don’t think
for a second
that I will let you
trample over me
like I’m nothing.

I’m worth so much
more than that.
I’m worth loving.
I’m worth being loved
in return. And if you
can’t see that,
then I don’t
need you here.
I have everything I need.
Because I am my own home.
