Don’t

You become aware
of the unmistakable
stagnancy of your life
when things are seen
that can’t be unseen.

You let people
waste your time.
You let people
give you the
bare minimum
or accept from you
the best you can do
when the truth is
you could do better.

You let people get away
with it when they want
to dictate who you are.
You spend so much time
thinking you are strong and
that no one can shake you
when the truth is you are
not being selfish enough.

You let yourself believe
that you don’t deserve
any better and that you
want what everyone else
has decided you deserve.

And then one day, you don’t.
