Set yourself up for failure
Because no one gives a 
Goddamn about you

Set fire to your temple and let it burn
I've been abused since I was five
There's nothing really left inside
I have trust issues until the day I die
In my mind I don't deserve love

So with the scars on my thigh
I'll look at the person who did this to me
I don't have to look far
I'm running from the mirror now

The final verse is particularly strong--emotionally stirring is a better way to say it.

Keep writing. Get it out. It took me years of writing including three anthologies to work through the trauma of child abuse. Eventually, if you keep writing and do the healing work, you realize you are worthy of love and you are your own best friend. If you can bare it, every time you pass a mirror, say, I love you unconditionally. I learned that from Louise Hay. Thank you for sharing your raw and real truth. You never know who else it will inspire to work through their pain. ❤
