What I Did For Me

I’m trying to see how my lyrics work as standalone poetry, but I can’t help but sing them, so I’ll leave it for you to decide.

This is something I wrote from a ‘dirge’ I was sent from my friend, Paul, with the recorded sing at the end.

~~~~~~

You took my heart and threw it down the stairs
Right after me
You took my soul and left without a care
I could not see what you did to me

You took my eyes and blinded me with lust
Now I can see
You took my lips and filled them with mistrust
I could not speak, and you left me weak

You can take my heart and you can throw it away
But I’m still growing stronger every day
And I don’t need you to stand by me
You’re so much weaker than I thought you’d be
You’re just a bully and I was your prey
But now I’m growing stronger every day
You can take your pain and your life’s disarray
‘Cos I’m not a toy for you to play with
You can’t make me blow like a chain reactor
Now I’ve found the way to my true character
F*ck you boy, I’m happier on my own
Now my life ain’t like a f*ckin’ combat zone

I took my mind and sought something profound
Something for me
I took my soul, I turned my life around
Now all can see, what I did for me
