Yes, You Can Still Hurt Me

Liliana Kohann

Yes, you can still hurt me,
You can make me shiver
You can even temporary
Deprive me of my dignity
You can make me doubt
You can put a knife through my heart
You can insult me
You can put me down
You can call me names
You can make my tears roll down
You can make me mute for a moment
You can make me feel stupid or unworthy
Yes, you can still hurt me,
   Yet with my tears falling down
         With my heart full of fears
             With my openness held back
                  I am moving FORWARD!
                       And you can’t stop that.
