This one's for all the ones who were left behind
crippled with questions like
Am I enough?
This one's for the women who wanted to be the girl he could ALWAYS count on
Who’d have his back no matter the cost
even when that cost was far too high
Because that was the hero they so desperately dreamed of
This one’s for those who thirst for love, unconditionally
Not knowing that conditions keep us safe
and devotion unchecked
Is a cage
Not a boat.
This one’s for you if you’re keeping someone small,
because you’re not the one
and want to spare them pain
You’re not a martyr.
Don’t extinguish someone's light
and have them question their worth each day
We both know they will never be enough
selfish has two faces
If you love them
Let them go.
This one is for you if you are broken
if you’ve been unhappy for a long time
the hardest pill to swallow
is that you aren’t enough for yourself.
You see, the world may be against you
And the stars misaligned
But until you face the demons that keep you trapped inside
you’ll stay caught in the that ecosystem
drowning the garden of your mind.
Let it grow.
