the other side.

There comes a day
when what we think of ourselves
becomes more important
than what others think of us
and doing what makes us happy
takes priority.

There comes a day
when we grow into our own
and allow our hearts to sigh
and take leave from any pressures
or expectations from the outside.

We look around and realize
our lives are what we make them to be.

So anytime I’ve been stowing away
waiting for you
I’m spending right now on myself.

One Comment to “the other side.”

  1. very nice and echoes much of what i’ve gone through personally the last year and a half. i spent a long time living to impress other people, who – when the shit really hit the fan – didn’t give a rip about me afterall.

    well spoken dear.
