They put me
to the test,
to see how patient I am.
Making me wait
for a long time.
They put me
to the test,
to see if I’m violent
hurting me
and see how
I show my resentment.
They put me
to the test,
to see if they are ideal,
breaking my heart
and spirit.
Over and over again.
They put me
to the test,
to see how loving I am.
I’m more than what
They expected you to be.
They put me
to the test,
let me show
my true personality.
