I Took My Pen Back

Updated: Mar 23



YOU RETOLD ME MY STORY UNTIL

I BELIEVED YOU

WHEN I SAID ENOUGH, YOU TOLD THE WORLD I WAS CRAZY

AND I BELIEVED YOU

I DON’T BELIEVE YOU ANYMORE.

I took my pen back

YOU SAID IF I PROVED MY SELF IN ACTION

I WOULD BE WORTHY

YOU SAID IF I BUILT IT AND GREW IT

I WOULD BE VALUABLE

YOU LIED.

I FOUND MY WORTH & MY VALUE IN ME

NOT IN YOU.

I took my pen back

YOU TELL ME THE MARK I'M TO HIT, AND WHEN I DO, YOU TELL ME "I NEVER MEANT IT". YOU TAKE CREDIT FOR MY WORK WHEN WHAT I DO IS THE IMPOSSIBLE AND I DO IT FOR YOU YOUR REIGN IS OVER.

I took my pen back

WHEN YOU TRIED TO CONTROL MY WORLD I LIVED MY TRUTH. WHEN YOU TRIED TO CONTROL HOW THEY SAW ME I LIVED MY TRUTH. YOUR KRYPTONITE IS WHEN I LIVE MY TRUTH!

I took my pen back

YOU HAD ME CONVINCED I NEEDED YOU BUT I REALLY NEEDED ME YOU SAID I WANTED WHAT YOU WERE BUT IT WASN'T ME THAT WAS JEALOUS YOU SAID THAT NEVER HAPPENED BUT I HAPPENED.

I took my pen back

YOUR PROMISES WERE OFFERED LIKE SWEET CANDY BUT THEY WERE EMPTY YOUR LOYALTY WAS THE PRIZE BUT YOU NEVER DELIVERED YOUR NEED FOR ME WAS ODDLY HIGH BUT I DON'T NEED YOU NOW.

I took my pen back

YOU SAID I WAS OVERREACTING I WAS PROTECTING YOUR INTERESTS YOU CLIMBED UP BY STEPPING ON MY BACK I PROPPED YOU UP FOR SUCCESS YOU UNLEASHED IN ME A MADNESS FOR SANITY AND HERE I AM NOW....

I took my pen back

YOU USED SHAME TO MOTIVATE BUT IT ONLY CRUSHED US YOU USED MISDIRECTION TO KEEP US RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR FAILURES BUT IT ONLY EXTINGUISHED OUR ZEAL YOU USED SECRECY TO KEEP US LOYAL BUT WE TALK!

We took our pens back

YOU PLAYED GOD WITH MY LIFE AND EXPECTED ME TO THANK YOU FOR IT YOU MADE ME INVISIBLE UNTIL YOU NEEDED A HOME FOR BLAME YOU CHOSE TO DEMEAN ME IN FRONT OF OTHERS AND MY COMMUNITY YOU WILL SUCK NO MORE LIFE FROM ME!

I took my pen back

YOU SAID I WAS WEAK

BUT I DON'T HAVE TO BE WEAK TO BE ABUSED

YOU SAID I WAS WEAK

BECAUSE YOU WERE THREATENED BY MY STRENGTH

YOU SAID I WAS WEAK

BECAUSE YOU WERE WEAK

I took my pen back

YOU SAID TO REACH THE HIGHEST PEAK

WHEN I DID, YOU SAID YOU DIDN'T MEAN IT

YOU SAID I DROPPED ALL THE BALLS

BUT YOU WERE HOLDING THEM

YOU GAVE PROJECTS AND DEADLINES SUPERMAN COULDN’T MAKE

BUT IM FUCKING WONDER WOMAN SO I DID AND…

I took my pen back

YOU QUALIFY LOVE BY GIFTS YOU GIVE BUT IT ONLY MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER YOU LIST YOUR EFFORTS TO PROVE LOVE BUT YOU WON’T TAKE RESPONSIBILITY YOU CONVINCE YOURSELF MANIPULATION IS A WORKING RELATIONAL EXCHANGE BUT IT’S NOT WORKING

I took my pen back


YOU'RE GOING TO RETELL MY STORY BUT I'M STILL TELLING MY STORY YOU WILL WORK TO DISCREDIT MY STORY BUT I'M STILL TELLING MY STORY YOU'RE GOING TO TELL PEOPLE WHO I AM BUT I'M STILL TELLING MY STORY

I TOOK MY PEN BACK AND WROTE MY OWN STORY...MY WAY!
