To be strong for so long
To camouflage your true feelings
To wipe the tears away
To force the pain to fade away
To lose your best friend
To be nursed by experiences
To lose trust for those around you
To be suspicious of love
To live in terror

To be homeless
To flee from violence
To be abused
To be mistreated
To be scarred by the one you love
To hide from the beatings
To be rescued from the drama
To be misunderstood
And guarded by uncertainty

To find comfort once more
To know what it feels like to be safe again
To be loved and cared for
To eat and be satisfied
To look back at your past and be grateful
To be thankful for all you have
To know plenty
To give plenty
To be loved and cared for
