I am stronger

I am stronger....

You smile at me,
Then give a great sigh.
You raise your hand,
And soon make me cry.  

You say I'm not worthy,
I'm a bloody disgrace.
You solve all these issues,
With a punch to my face.

I have bled, I have lied,
I have ached in my heart.
I have covered the bruises, 
Torn my whole life apart.

Then come the words,
The sorries, the tears.
The begging, the pleading,
The guilt and the fears.

But now I am stronger,
I have left all that pain.
I have left you, you bastard,
You won't hit me again.
