Had it not been for you, I would’ve set aside my dreams.

You gave me life, respect, and the push I didn’t know I need.

You watched me grow. You’ve helped me grow into who I am today.

But now that I am where I need to be, you’ve taken your support away.

You told me things like how to get over someone who didn’t mean me any good.

When I finally let go you took his place just how I knew you would.

But now I need you the most; you dare just up and leave.

I guess for me to mature, that’s how things really have to be.

I can’t say it doesn’t hurt because to us I’d be tryna fool.

How I was just convenient and for your ego I was just a tool.

Now I’m scarred, scared, numb, and damn near damaged.

Good thing I have the memories because that’s all I can manage.
