Intro: Instrumentals

I don’t know who needs to hear this
But this is for you
Whoever you are, wherever you are
Be true to you
Don’t settle for less, value yourself
Be the best you can be
And get out of that mess!

He tells you he loves you, he wants you stay
He treats you like trash and you think it’s okay
You’ve got many bruises, quit making excuses
Come out of that trap you’ve coiled yourself into
I know that you love him, I know that it’s true
But this is abusive, you can’t continue
Like this is controlling — quite manipulative
I can’t see why you want to stay with a narcissist.

She tells you she’s okay, she says you’re enough
But deep down inside her, she knows that you’re not
You can’t afford her and it’s driving you nuts
You struggle so hard meanwhile she’s got back up
She tells you lies over and over again
She taunts you and teases you over again
Emotional blackmail, you’re going insane
It’s getting all messed up, you want out but you’re stuck

Okay, let me just say this:
There are times when you need to love people from a distance
for the sake of your sanity.
If you’re in any relationship
that makes you depressed,
that doesn’t bring out the best in you
Do yourself a favour: Leave!

Get out of that mess that you call a relationship
You deserve better, not a situationship
Go out and be great, the future is brighter
Believe me when I say the future is better
Stop wasting your time being abused and depressed
There’s more to life than being loved so less
Take out more time to learn to love yourself
The best you can do is invest in yourself

Go out there and develop your skills
Set those goals, make them real
Take a step, one day at a time
Never let kindness go out of your mind
Love the Creator, love those around you
Be with positive people, let them surround you
Be prayerful, don’t settle for less then
Learn to be the best you can be.

And someday you’ll find the one who wants to love you just as much.

About Free Yourself

Free Yourself is a rap infused spoken word poetry that encourages people to leave abusive, toxic and one-sided relationships so they can be free. Free enough to love and invest in themselves; free enough to enjoy love when it eventually comes.

The first part of the poem talks about a lady in an abusive relationship. The second part talks about a guy in a one-sided relationship. The other parts are words of advice on how to be better people pending the time true love comes.

The poet points out that there’s more to life than being stuck in an unhealthy relationship. She also points out that being single isn’t a bad thing. There’s room for exploration, for self love and self investment.

The poem was inspired by a post written by people who loved more than they were loved. Also, the instrumental titled Potrait of time by Aakash Gandhi (88keystoEuphoria) influenced the flow.

At the end of the day, for one to grow and become better, one must learn to love one’s self first.

That was so beautifully said and exactly what I needed to hear. It’s always good to remind ourselves that we don’t need other people to validate ourselves. We are perfect for just being us. <3

keep up the great work. Toxic relationships are hard to leave.


Beautiful and meaningful. It’s a new decade and a new day, time to clean the closets and say goodbye to cray, cray. 😘

I love how personal your attack is. Very emotional. Great job!

Sarah Afshar

Extremely liberating words that depict a strong ardor between two people, where one of the parties is dangerously destructive. I was reminded of a relationship I had where this happened. Thank you for sharing.

Kristine Nicole Alessandra

This poem is so beautiful. It speaks of real true to life relationships, about things that happen behind those closed doors. I was in a bad relationship before and I am so glad that I had mustered enough strength to turn my back and walk away.
