I would choose myself over you!

I am being unapologetic about it,

As I am honest, even when I like you more.

A forest would choose her burnt trees

and withered flowers as they are hers,

Even when I am broken, I am mine to be underwritten.

Not by you as you are still a lover, treating me as a home.

I see you with myself even when I am fine

with everything undone and hardly true.

When I choose myself over you, I’d be kind to you,

And when I’d ask you the same thing,

I am hoping that you choose yourself over me too.
