Tell me the truth.
You don't like what I write?
Okay,then tell me so.
You don't like who I am?
Okay,then tell me so.

You can say what you want about me.
Just don't think you can hurt me.
Tell me the truth that's all I want.
I've grown stronger.
Now,tell me the truth.

It is short, but I think that it works in its favor. I like how it just straight-up tells you how you feel, rather than it using many irrelevent clutter words. Nice job.
