Self

Yes, I’m selfish.
After years of internal deliberation I’ve decided to love me more than you.
If I had to choose, there would be no hesitation.
It was never me, it was always you.

You don’t respect my level of intelligence.
Your job was to protect my heart and all I saw was negligence.

I will now focus on selfcare.
Shield my aura and protect my welfare.
I used to be selfless.
Hiding who I really was just to impress.
You never knew all that I possessed.

I’m closing the door you opened for me because it was never good for my mental health.
I am just holding on to myself.
