I'll never stand tall. I'll never be saved. I'll never not be small. I'll never be free from it all. These days, I just feel alone. I'll always be lost. I'll always be afraid. I'll always know of the cost. I'll always know the mistake I made. These days, I just feel invisible. I might be uncertain. I might be unsure. I might carry a burden. I might get lost within the lore. These days, I just feel clueless. But now I know what I can do, to stop people from hurting kids like you. I can be stronger for you, if not myself. I can be proud, I can stand tall, I can learn to rise above it all. These days, I just want to protect you.
