What You Took Was Mine (Trigger warning PTSD)

Trigger warning...#MeToo

This is a song I started a long time ago and decided to finish it and record it. It's a song I wrote right after something unfortunate happened in my life...someone broke into my home and attempted to assault me, or rather succeeded. Needless to say I kicked the dude right in the stomach and he ran away. I have recovered from my PTSD for the most part but the feelings of violation and rage aren't something you can just wish away. Especially if you are stuck living in the place it happened for awhile.

This song was a way to let me cope and express those emotions I had during the fallout. It might be kind of intense. You may not want to listen to it. I needed to release it to the world for my own sake so I can release the horrible memory associated with it.

Thank you all for being here even if you and I have never met in real life. This community helped me so much through that fucked up time in my life. Love you always.

Thank y'all for your comments. I was honestly thinking nobody would listen to it heart It's been nice to sing again. I'm hoping to put more vocals on the rest of my weekly beats songs from now on.

Thank you Janx! Hopefully I'll be able to add some vocals to at least one of my tracks this year.
