[Poetry] I Am ... Better than you Think

Author:

I am better than you think

I am better than you think
I wonder if you appreciate that
I hear you put me down
I see the hardness in your eyes
I want to break free of this
I am better than you think

I pretend to be in control
I feel I must run away
I touch the door handle
I worry you will stop me
I cry for the courage to go
I am better than you think

I understand that you are not good for me
I say "I must go now"
I dream of a better life
I try to walk away
I hope I can start again
I am better than you think
