They left everyone behind.
Told them ‘You’re a waste of time.’
They crept under their rock
Surfacing only for a hand out.
I was a fool to think
I could prove myself
That I was worth having around.
But you see,
I am a people pleaser.
Raised to bend for everyone else
I will bend
I will break
I will end up shattered
All for another’s love and appreciation.
Now it’s my turn to leave Them behind,
Tell them ‘You’re not worth my time.’
Love is a two way street
And I am not going to drive both sides
Not when they refuse to see me as I am.
Not when family means nothing.
I am learning my worth
And screw those who can’t see it.
