Whatever it is inside of me that is okay with letting people
step on me,
treat me rudely,
hurt me purposefully,
And continually come to me trying to get something,
needs to make them work a little harder;
Instill a little ardor in them.
The part of me that is perfectly okay with
giving my free time away,
neglecting to rest,
ignoring my own needs,
forgetting to eat,
and wanting to quit believing in myself
needs to go to hell.
I’m not okay with treating myself this way anymore.
