I'd rather have my words
go out to one stranger
who needs to hear them,
instead of the several I know who don't.
So with those words written,
the fight for your approval
becomes less intense
because I know these words
weren't meant for you.
So for every time you
treated me like a monster because you
didn't agree with my decisions,
maybe you should've taken a step back,
so you could see how well
my decisions improved me as a person.
I find it sad when it takes a complete
stranger to the situation to see life in me
when it's standing right in front of you.
