He put me down,
I still held on to him,
His words always had me down,
I was afraid to let go of him,
I kept giving him power the more I let him knock me down.
Why was I afraid to let go of him?
I thought I couldn’t survive without love,
What I didn’t realize then was that I could survive without him,
What I didn’t realize then was that I already had love,
It was a genuine love that I never got from him.
It was a love from me,
All I needed was to learn how to love me,
Sadly, loving him made me stop loving me,
Until one day life showed me that I needed to love me,
That’s when I saw how bad he was for me.
I stopped being afraid of letting go of him,
I started to love me more,
I took my love away from him,
That’s when I said, “I’m not letting any lover mistreat me anymore,”
That’s when I finally saw how beautiful life and love was without him.
