The sleepless nights spent thinking
About things that add nothing
The several times I looked at the mirror
And regretted what I saw
The woes lamented for a moment too long
The choices made to please the “them”
Every time wasted, money squandered
Opportunities lost
Every friendship sought and forsaken
All the things that sounded good
And those that tasted better
Taking time on things not sound
Making me less than a mime
Thinking that I knew the best
Receiving what I did not want
And giving what I’d rather keep
I forgive you, me
I forgive you for them all
