written Fall 2009


And learn to bite your tongue yourself for once.
It’s about time you found out that
Others can’t do things for you forever.

Take your insults away from this;
Reflect a little. If you think of it, you’ll see:
They mirror your decisions and not my life,
Not my choices, not ever me.

Go ahead, having fun with all those games you play.
But if you stop for just a second, you’ll see really who’s to blame.
What’s been said has been said, and it is so long overdue.
And as for you…?
