I ain’t sufficient

Why do I look for peace in people when they’ll leave eventually?

Is there no love for myself within me?

Someone to hold and walk in the path I need,

why am I not sufficient for myself?

From the woods, I crave green,

I skip chapters that are about you, certainly.

I said once I’ll let you hurt me twice,

but this time I am worsened by your dishonesty.

Carrying your baggage, injure me every time,

you aren’t awakened with the things you did to me,

nor did you see these tears that are a sign of your lies.

I surrounded myself with greenery,

I won’t ask that to my woods,

I am trying to heal, I won’t be coming back to you.
