You were savage in your approach to me,
but I can see now why you came.
In the cruel, punishing and hurtful place,
I experienced incredible pain.
And all of those things I thought so real,
material things and the like.
Stripped me bare so I lost my way out,
I travelled the darkest night.
I questioned why you came for me then,
I know better now on this side.
You needed to help me see my falseness,
on that awful fairground ride.
Screaming all through that savage year,
I came through knowing myself.
Of all the things you taught me last year,
it was to trust in nobody else.
