Invincible

“You’re fat.”
“Are you pregnant?”
“I do not want her on my team.”
“No, you can’t sit here.”

Pretty powerful words that have stuck with me for a long time. It began in Kindergarten and never left until I became homeschooled.

This bloody road remains a mystery
This sudden darkness fills the air

“If you just lost a little bit of weight I would like you.”
“You’re so ugly you have to wear all that makeup.”
“You can try, but you can never hide your fat.”

Words are kinda a thing with me. Perhaps that is why I enjoy writing so much?

What are we waiting for?
Won’t anybody help us?
What are we waiting for?

“You whore!”
“Slut”
“Your opinion means nothing here.”

Assholes. Every last one of them. Assholes.

We can’t afford to be innocent
Stand up and face the enemy
It’s a do or die situation
We will be invincible

“How many partners have you had?
“Are you sure you did not drink?”
“How about drugs, any drug use during pregnancy?”

Will this ever end? What is it about me that makes people think they can talk to me like they do?

This shattered dream you cannot justify
We’re gonna scream until we’re satisfied
What are we running for?
We’ve got the right to be angry
What are we running for?
When there’s no where we can run to anymore

“Low carb is ridiculous, that won’t help.”
“You have to be careful of what you read online.”
“Let us do our job, and you do yours.”

No. I am trying low carb. You know nothing about my daughter. This is how it will be. I am in control.

We can’t afford to be innocent
Stand up and face the enemy
It’s a do or die situation
We will be invincible

“You are illogical”
“You need to educate yourself”
“You are just posting stuff to get under your conservative family’s skin.”

Not today Honey, not today.

And with the power of conviction
There is no sacrifice
It’s a do or die situation
We will be invincible

“Gracie, your Mom is so smart for doing her research. We will back her up until we have no other options.”

“I just wanted to let you know that I applaud your efforts to post truthful stories about what is going on with these children”

“Mom, will it be okay? Do I have anything to worry about? I am scared.”

Yes, you will be okay. It is my job to make sure you are okay. I come from strong and so do you. Together, we are Invincible.
