Can you see me?
Do you see me? Standing in the corner.
All black and blue like a Monet or Turner
Hiding from view as to not make a scene
Whilst inside of me, is a silent scream.
Childhood now gone I’m now an adult
I ask, Do you see me? Do you see me?
Years of violence by the kindness of hands
How could I trust a mum and a dad
I see you now but don’t look at me
under this armour I’m vulnerable you’ll see
You think that I’m strong but I feel I’m weak
Can you still love me? Do you still love me
I push and I pull, the people that care
You could try living in my worst nightmare
Teachers, fosterers, agree that they know
Why I’m so Feral, and cause them Agro
I flirt, I bite and I slash and I curse
Where is my family, you all made it worse
Here I am now, stood back in the corner
It’s too late now for me I have enough mourners
It was all futile and altogether worthless
The social care changes I couldn’t care less,
Do you finally see. Do you finally see… me!!!
