As I turned 3,
I was let down by mom and dad,
Who decided to give my share of love,
To another baby girl.
When I was 11,
I was let down by a girl,
Who I called my best friend,
But she had another as her first.
When I was 15,
A guy let me down,
My first love and supposedly ever after,
Who left me broken in the middle of everything.
When I was 17,
I was let down by the society,
Who worshipped me like goddess at home,
And molested me in the streets.
When I was 20,
I was let down by the womankind,
Who asked me to live freely,
Yet tied me to the ground with their rules.
As I'm close to turning 22,
I've learned to fight the blues,
It was never about who let you down,
But the one who raises you from the ground.
