We are the choices we make.
Fear of the unknown keeps us steeped in the
Staleness of familiar routine,
Keeps us running from possibilities or what might have been.
But that is the chance we take.
To not learn lessons the first time round
Is understandable, part of growing and
Learning to be who we can be,
But a second missed chance is more than missed opportunity.
It is a problem compound.
A kind person remains kind for so long,
But how many rejections and dismissals do
You think it might take before they don’t come back?
Or do you assume they’ll always return, because self-worth they lack?
If you do, let me inform you now. You. Are. Wrong.
You do not get to take me for granted.
