Afraid to be alone,
Desperately wanting a love to stand by me,
Letting bad people in just so I wouldn’t be alone,
I let them mistreat me,
All because I didn’t want to be alone.
Loneliness hit me around those who mistreated me,
It was like being alone,
Still I didn’t want them to leave me,
I didn’t want to be completely alone,
I didn’t have faith in me.
I didn’t believe that I could be okay without those who mistreated me,
I didn’t realize life would be so much better without those who mistreated me,
I used to think life was better with those who mistreated me,
I hadn’t realized that they were also making living hard for me,
Most of all, I didn’t think about me.
It was until age reminded me that I’ll end up with regrets if I chose to stay,
I didn’t want to look back and see that I never knew a moment of happiness,
Thus, I chose not to stay,
I walked away from those who didn’t add to my happiness,
Now I’m thankful that I didn’t stay.
