A Brand New Chapter

It is time I started

to take control

and relegate you to

a minor role.

It is time I stopped

listening to you

now I know what you tell me

is not true.

It is time I took a look

at myself in the mirror

and correct the things

I have done in error

like when I believed you

when you said I was no good,

you were the one

who ruined my childhood.

As the years passed

your voice grew louder

and from family and friends

I fell from favour.

Now I know I have no choice

but to fight back,

to stand up and defend myself

from your constant attack.

It is only then when I have turned

your voice to a whisper

then my life can begin

a brand new chapter.
