I Am Not Too Weak

this is no longer directed solely toward you

this is to you and anyone else
who thinks or has thought i am too weak
to handle the “darker side of life”
to handle “the past”
i, too, have gone through my fair share of shit and unspeakable atrocities
i, too, have a closet overflowing with morbid tales
i, too, have a bleak past that not many know about
but
if you get close enough
if i trust you enough
i could show you
scars
on my mind
on my heart
on my skin
i could paint you memories
red
with blood, anguish, pain
blue
with sadness, despair, hopelessness
black
with no sense of direction, loss, death
i could show you
bruises
he left
blood
she spewed
i could give you
the taste of many
on my tongue
but mostly
i could give you my heart
or at least what’s left of it
it is icy, barren, cold, desolate, dusty, broken, shattered, patched, mended, guarded
unused
i’m not an innocent little girl
with no past
i have seen things
i have heard things
i have done things
i have gone through things
and i
i am not weak
so rip open your closet door
and drown me in your past
i will not run away
i will not be scared off
because as the saying goes
“misery loves company”

Artist's Description

i’m tired of people thinking that they have to keep things from me. things like their past. people think that their past can scare others away because they have gone through such horrible things. and i understand where they come from. but i wish they would just give me a chance. because, not only am i a strong, independent girl who doesn’t scare easily, i, also, have gone through a lot of terrible things that not many people know about.
so if you’re one of those people who feel they have to hide their past, give me a chance. because more likely than not, at the end of your tale i will still be standing right there next to you, listening and feeling with all my heart, not having flinched once.
nothing can push me away from people i know and love.
