The kid you deserve

When you see the scars, Would you believe? Would you trust my words? Would you have faith in me? When I say I fought hard. I tried to get up when I fall, And, I tried to be the kid you deserve Would you still love me? If I am not the same kid anymore, The urges of mine, Those constant whine, All those times when I said I was fine, I wasn't, I was falling apart, Maybe you sensed it, And cuddled me to sleep. Maybe you thought it as another teenage fit, Because that was a secret I had to keep.
