Earned

Teaching others

How to treat

Oneself can be a daunting task

Many of us don’t feel that we deserve

All that is owed to us

Submitting to be given less than we’ve earned

Home With You

Can’t go with you
Won’t go with you

But would you even ask me to

Convincing myself that I can’t have you

At least not in that way
You made that quite clear that day

There’s the part that wants more
And the part that knows I’ll only get less

So for now I’ll just say you do you
And tell myself I won’t be going home with you
