Welcome Home

You looked at me the way I look at myself
Asking- what, you think you  could?

Like that, I became a little girl
Put in a box- like I should
That’s my home, my safety

I wanted to scream
To yell
That I could and I would

Fight back

I’ve said those words—too many times to count
I know them by heart by now

I don’t need to hear it from you
I already know it’s true
But you don’t get to tell me, too

I would’ve yelled
But only in a dream
I didn’t yell
I didn’t fight back

I resisted as best I could
And yet—

You still put me back in a box
