Stolen from me was my innocence 
So vulnerable, and so blind I did not see it coming
My desperation for love overtook my sense of self worth sacrificing my dignity
At any and all cost just to feel whole. 

Desperate for acceptance yearning for a place to belong 
Dying to feel loved
Lost in a world all my own 

Stolen from me was my future 
My life was a self created maze that I could not escape
I could not find my path 
With every wrong turn I seemed to fall into the arms of those 
Who sought to lie, cheat, steal & eventually kill every ambition within me 

I need a map

I was a threatening force to be reckoned with 
unfortunately that force was unbeknownst to myself 

Stolen from me was my spirit 
by people who were suppose to be loving me 
who instead planted seeds in my head of doubt & defeat

Fear overcame me 

Stolen from me was my ability to believe that I could achieve anything 
I put my mind too 


Or did I give it all away????
