Damn it all!

written by: Sweet Insanity

I didn't deserve to be happy
I wasn't a whole person
Not a good, or smart, or pretty person

I didn't deserve to be happy
But you wouldn't listen to me
You couldn't understand
That I was damaged
A broken toy meant to be discarded not mended

I didn't deserve to be happy
But you thought you knew better
You saw something in me
And I hated you for it

For years you beat your head against my defenses
Trying to make a dent
You never gave up trying
To make me see myself as you saw me

I didn't deserve to be happy
It was as simple as that
But now...
Nothing's entirely in focus
Because I'm starting to see your image of me

I didn't deserve to be happy
And now I have to figure out
How the hell to let myself be happy
