I Wrote You A Letter


I wrote you a letter today, I gave you up
Your abusive treatment of me, the ones was meant to destruct
I feel so much better now, you can't make me feel like your inferior anymore
Your treatment of me was something I could take no more of your scorn


You have lost the grasp you had on my life, you can no longer spew your hate
Writing you this letter has released so much pain, I feel great
No more having to be where I don't feel at comfortable and at ease
After all I can be myself, it's no longer you I have to please

I no longer have to be the subject of your hate and disrespect
I've decided it's my feelings and life I have to protect
So I just wanted you to know, you don't exist to me
It took years but now I don't have to pretend anymore I'm free

Because of your abusive ways I'm a much stronger woman
I'm free to be just me, not some super human

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
