You Don't Want To Go There

By I IS ME

Do you know what it's like to be little more than five and look a killer right in the eyes 
You don't wanna go there, you don't wanna go there 
Do you know what it's like to be terrified to sleep at night 
You don't wanna go there, you don't wanna go there 
 
Do you know what it is to jump everytime something move 
You don't wanna go there, you don't wanna go there 
There's nothing to comfort you, there's no one to soothe 
You don't wanna go there, you don't wanna go there 
 
Have you ever stared up at the ceiling at night, praying that you die before morning light 
You don't wanna go there, you don't wanna go there 
Have you ever hid under the covers listening knowing it's your turn when they finish their fight 
You don't wanna go there, you don't wanna go there 
 
Have you ever felt the blows from a giants fist 
Have you ever gotten choked out for looking like this 
Fucking work boots to the throat, two ribs broke 
Held in the air, feeling my spirit float 
 
Can you remember that point when your mind first snapped 
When I Is Me was created and started plotting his trap 
An escape was made, winters spent with no place to live 
What's the use putting out your hand, when everyone refuses to give 
 
Shoes full of holes barely held together on my feet 
There's a hell of a choice between shoes and something to eat 
Do you go back to where you left and beg for some heat 
Do you resubmit yourself to being abused and admit defeat 
 
You stand there thinking, pulling out your hair 
I'll tell you again you don't wanna go there, you don't wanna go there 
Some claim that they want to see what I became when my mental decided to tear 
I'll tell you once more, you don't wanna go there, you don't wanna go there

    How real and visceral, and powerful this poem is! This gives a voice to those who go through this, and opens the eyes of those that haven't.
