Breaking the Cycle

I know what I saw
Don’t invalidate my truth
That fear in your eyes
The sole needed proof

Was the need for another
So great that you’d bend
The instincts most necessary
To protect versus mend

But what could you do
You were raised just the same
In a fucked up environment
Hidden sorrow and shame

Push on, that’ll show ’em
Go achieve some succe$$
But no thing unburdens
That weight on your chest

The best thing you taught me
Was how not to live
I’m breaking the cycle
So I can forgive

What say you?
