Memories

Memories, memories
I have had.
Some were good, though most were bad.
Physical and sexual abuse occurred
And madness and sadness reoccurred.
I feel as though I'm on display as the messed up school girl here to stay,
but they will never know
how I will grow
and be someone some day.
So look at me in dismay
and you discourage me for the last time today.
