You taught me to be strong, The bad kind of strong

I remember way back when,
I brought my diary to school.
You snatched it right out of my 
hand,
And threw it to your fellow 
fools.
You guys laughed,
Passed it around,
Until I took it back,
And walked away with my head 
held high.
I think that was the day I 
decided to be strong,
To finally be my own self.
But what they said, it still went 
in my mind,
So the lies climbed the vine 
right out of my mouth.
Because sometimes there's no 
more room for scars, not on 
your wrists, not in your mind.
So they travel down to your 
vocal chords and let you 
breathe their words out to 
them.
You are turning into one of the 
monsters.
But now they stopped.
Cowards, Too afraid to mock 
me again.
Now I am strong,
But not the kind I want to be.
I have to lie,
And now i'm the 
coward.
