LoveHate

I gave you everything I had,

I risked everything for you to not get killed by my Dad.

I kept it 100 with you,

But all you did was play me for a fool.

You always told me I was your baby girl & you’d love me to the very end,

But now I just want to forget the entire world.

 

I forgive you,

But I can’t forget…it hurts

I really LoveHate you.

 

You were such a disgrace always leaving black and blue,

I tried to play it cool,

But I think everyone knew it was you.

In the end, you always said that you were sorry and you’d never do it again,

I believed you,

But it was never to end.

 

I forgive you,

But I can’t forget…it hurts

I really LoveHate you.

 

When I needed you to lend a hand,

You’d said to let ya know.

But you weren’t there.

I tried to leave and I couldn’t stand when you wouldn’t let me go.

My name is Monnee and I’m 16 years old, I am here at Northwest Passage to work on many things. This picture reminded me a lot about a past relationship. I picture myself as the leaf and the raindrops as many things that bothered me such as the abuse emotionally, verbally, and physically and all the stress. But as soon as I let the raindrop go, as in as soon as I let him go, I’ll be okay.

Monnee’s reflection is a part of her work at Northwest Passage, a mental health residential treatment center for kids dedicated to restoring hope through innovative mental health services for children and families. LoveHate is just one of the many great strides she is making on her journey of hope and healing. Thank you for sharing Monnee!
