Because Of You

by Kayla

Made so many promises to myself
That I never could keep
Told myself so many lies
That I tried so hard not to reach
Loved someone so much
And missed him so much more
Never made the right choices
Never chose the right door
Messed so many things up
Never got anything right
Never gave myself the chance
Always something about me someone didn’t like
Wished away reality
Burned up all my dreams
Cried away the fear and pain
Forgot what it really means
Pretended I was someone else
Never appreciated what I was to myself
Laughed away the anger
When I could do nothing else
Finally remembered how to love
Gave someone my faith and trust
Found something in me I never knew
I befriended myself
All because of you

i love you, jody!
