9/21/19 | Never

Never.

Never again will I fall to your words.

Never again will I listen to your lies,

Or the times you told me you cared about me,

Or the ways you used to look at me.

Never again will I listen to the doubts

In my head

That told me I wasn't good enough.

Never again will I listen to those voices,

Because you put them there.

Never again will I allow you to define my worth

Or give my life meaning.

Because I gave it meaning.

Not you.

Never again will I fall for your foolish ways

Or charismatic personality.

It was charming for a moment,

But the deception eventually creeped through

And your true colors

Revealed themselves.

Never again will I let another man define my worth

Or place in this world.

My success is high,

Much higher than yours.

My happiness is grand,

Much grander than yours.

My dreams are big,

Much bigger than yours.

Never again will I fall to your words.

Never.

Philadelphia.
