But I Won’t

I can leave too.

I can push you away when it gets too hard.

I can think of myself first.

I can leave you guessing.

I can make you feel unwanted, insecure, unable to be loved.

I can drive you to insanity as you wonder what in the world you did wrong.

I can make you think it was all your fault.

I can come back only when you start to give up.

I can give you false hope.

I can take the easy way out.

I can turn away and never look back.

I can leave too.



For the folks who feel like they are constantly being left behind; for the ones who have nearly given up hope but still can’t bring themselves to admit it fully; for the ones who are angry about it; for the ones who can’t seem to get it right; here’s a poem for you.
