You lied

You told me I was not good enough

I almost believed you

You told me to give up

I nodded and agreed


You told me to shrivel and die

Lie in the corner and disappear

Hypnotised me to despondency

Your word was gospel to me

I bowed to your beckoning


I believed you 

Thought you were God

Embraced you

Loved you

Gave you all of me

…You lied



  1. Oh boy, this brings it all back again, Inzwakazi. But you must realise that by keeping quiet you teach others to mistreat you. It took me years to really realise this.
