For Better or Worse

By , Maryville, TN
Sometimes I look back
To when things were hard
I accepted it
I gave up

What could I have done?
What I did for the third time
I couldn't let her hurt him
The worst kind of betrayal
Or so I thought
I think I commited that too many times before
He had to know
She had to end it

I was selfish
Swallowed in self-pity
Consumed in ambition
Fought for months
And then almost lost him
If it wasn't for me
He would be better off
Or never to return
