Domestic Violence

You must have felt like a big boy
You must have thought you had broken me
Whenever you raised you hand
Whenever you choked me 

You must have felt big and bad
You must have thought I would never fight back
You must have thought that you controled me
You must have felt tough when you pulled that gun on me
you must have felt like you succeeded when you kept me from my family
You must have felt good when you had me where you wanted me
You must have felt good until i took control over my life 

Yes you did abuse me for far to long
No longer will I let you in
No longer will I let the effects get to me

No longer will I let you win
I will no longer worry about if your around the cornor 
I have more emotional scars from you

But each day I am getting stronger
Each day I realize life is to precious 
Each day I seen what i was missing 

Each day I regret not being with my mom and sister
Each day I regret I ever stayed with you
Each day I regret I ever met you

Each day I get stronger next time you wont be so lucky
No longer will I let my past haunt me
No longer will I be a victim

I am not a statistic 
I am a person 
I am a person who survived domestic violence

I won he didn't
I will always remember the good times
But most importantly the bad 
But my life is getting back to normal
