I did it for me

I gave you everything
when you should have been the one
to lay it all down for me
I paved the road for your ease
waited for any little sign
I could mistake for change

but I wised up

where did that strength come from?
this new path I created for myself
from your ruins
I never wavered
I never faltered
I persisted on
and on
and on

because it’s the bigger picture
short-term suffering
or long-term suffering

I chose a lifetime of real love
self-love
