The time has come to say good-bye to all the hurt and sorrow
For it has taken too much of me and I need a good tomorrow.
I know the truth within my heart, they got the best of me
But abuse is all that I received and now I’m finally free.
I was expected to remain to serve them like a slave
And I don’t think they’d be happy until I ended in a grave.
When I gained the strength and courage to put myself first
The abuse sprayed out so quickly like a fountain that had burst.
You must change to be as I want you to be is all I ever heard
Never any gratitude or never a kind word
I will never understand why they are the way they are
For they were born of me, so I find it quite bizarre.
Regardless of the pain I felt, I hold them in my heart
And am thankful for the distance that keeps us now apart.
I wish them only happiness and pray that they find peace
As all the hurt and anger I finally release.
