I can’t help but still be a little bitter
Left there
Don’t get me wrong I was a very rough-around-the-edges kid
I kept my head down
But was it really like that?
Did y’all really have no idea?
Did y’all really think I was fine?
All those red flags
All those firsthand experiences
Did the 360 visual of it all really look like it needed to be left
I get it
Life needed to be lived
Escapes needed to happen
I turned out fine
And so did y’all
But let’s not forget and let’s not go assigning titles or roles
Because it wasn’t like that
