I Didn’t Ask For

I didn’t ask for you to toss me aside
I didn’t ask for you to forget about me
I didn’t ask for you to call me a mistake
I didn’t ask for judgment
I didn’t ask for disgust
I didn’t ask for shame
I didn’t ask for alienation
I didn’t ask for your lies
I didn’t ask for broken promises
I didn’t ask for false hope
I didn’t ask for pity
I didn’t ask for silence
I didn’t ask for hatred
I didn’t ask for resentment
I didn’t ask for you to use me the way you did
I didn’t ask for this illness plaguing me
I didn’t ask for any of the name calling
I didn’t ask for addiction
I didn’t ask for you to spit on me
I didn’t ask for insults
I didn’t ask for jokes about me
I didn’t ask for anything that I know doesn’t exist
I didn’t ask for this body
I didn’t ask for this mental illness
I didn’t ask for trauma or rape
I didn’t ask for injustice
I didn’t ask for death
I didn’t ask for love that was never mine
I didn’t ask for my love to be taken away from me
I didn’t ask for myself to be second to last best
I didn’t ask for infertility
I didn’t ask for sexism
I didn’t ask for homophobia
I didn’t ask for racism
I didn’t ask for you to leave me
I didn’t ask for the bruises and scars left behind physically, mentally, and/or emotionally
I didn’t ask for everything to be taken from me
And bottom line, I didn’t ask for any of this so-called life of mine
