My mistakes, can you accept them

Some days I sit back and think
about how far I have come
from a life of drugs and danger
self mutilation and deprevation
hanging with the stoners
high everyday no matter the cost
rolling wih the outlaws
just waiting to get caught
getting jumped by the areans
for just a few laughs
holding a knife to a throat
of a guy who will take me
which ever way he can
burns on my legs
from the cigerette I just smoked
hoping for a distraction from the pain inside
empty bottle of pills
lying on the night stand by my bed
wanting to fall asleep and just never wake up
but end up praying to the porcelin god
and screaming to my parents its just the stomache flu
so many nights
should have never turned into mornings
so much pain
just calloused me over
and made me stronger
so you could see the girl
who sits here before you
just asking for one thing
to accept my past
my present
and eventually my future
no matter how many times I stumble
no matter how many days the old pain shines through these eyes
I may never be perfect
but I will always be loyal honest and caring
I will give you all for nothing
as long as the acceptance is there
the question now is can you take a challenge
accepting a girl as broken as me?

My mistakes, can you accept them

Artist's Description

Written to a guy who once told me I needed to let him in if we wanted to continue our relationship, it was the hardest thing for me to do. I read him this and he accepted the challenge but eventually through it back into my face, till this day I still do not regret it……. just him.
