Before Myself

20161106_100903 how can I tell you

so that you’ll understand

How can I stop you from

saying no every time I asked

How can I tell you that

I hate you

As I hate myself

Why not listen for a change

and turn your head off

I’ve tried all my tricks

I’m down on one

Knee and beggin

Please

I need you like yesterday

As I need myself today

how can I tell you

so you’ll understand

How can I get you to listen

I love you more today

Than all my yesterdays

I put you before I put myself

It just gets twisted as we get older

As I said it once

Let me repeat

To make it perfectly clear

I put you before I put myself

  1. Whatever pain someone has caused you..tends to have a cause in itself…: once we start to understand that, we can truly forgive…forgetting is another thing …I now understand my mother’s inability to be warm and loving came from her own impossible upbringing and history repeats itself. Knowing this stuff, starts to lessen the hurt caused somewhat….xxx Very good post…close to the edge of pain.
