Rejections and Goodbyes

A few more seconds
To teach yourself
To figure me out
And then I am gone...
A few more seconds
No more crying
No more pain
And then you are lost...
A few more seconds before you understand
How much you really need me...
I have the scars of battle on my side
Where you have none to show
That’s where strength plays her role
In make believing truth...
I’ll give you a few more seconds to see
How much you miss the breeze of laughter
The thoughts of wisdom
The true self that was I...
While you stood firm and took nothing
The whips lashing out at me
You had no true alibi...
That’s why these scars
Are the building bricks of my life
That’s why my life is so full
That’s why you now realize how much I am gone
I am done with you and moving on
