I am not who you’ve made me out to be

I am not a person who lacks consideration for others

Though sometimes I may act like it

I am not concerned only with myself

For myself

And my own thoughts and feelings

Though that was something you taught me to do

I am not afraid to make the right decisions

I am no longer who I used to be

For so long I was somebody I didn’t want to be

Somebody I couldn’t be proud of

I would love to place the blame on you

I would love to portray myself as the perfect victim

Who was helpless to who you are

But this doesn’t fall solely on you

You are something I need to change myself

I can

And I will
