Everything

you’ll never know it’s selfish
until it’s done to you
self-centered society
has made its mark on you
you yielding to temptation
shows no integrity
even if your intention
was never to hurt me
I will not let you hurt me
I will not let it stand
I will not let you stand there
and take my shaking hand
I will not let you hurt me
you’ll never ever see
I will not let you witness
a tear escape from me
I know I’m not perfection
at least to everyone
but I know I am the best thing
that’ll happen to someone
and for that moment I can
thank you now for this
this pain makes me appreciate
my future lover’s kiss
and as a new day brightens
my smile awaits the morn
my burdens have been lightened
my guiding path well-worn
so I’ll stare at my sun
and absorb every feeling
take solace that to someone
I will be everything
.
