Recognise your lovers

You’ve always given the wrong part of you

to people who don’t deserve you.

To some you gave your mind, they used it for their gain,

To some your body, for your vulnerability in exchange.

You always were willing to sacrifice yourself, for nothing but you.

You are worthy of everything,

this voice that you have is intriguing,

know yourself the way they do,

possess before that suppress that beauty in you.

Your eyes may shine for them,

but theirs can burn the forest you own.

Recognize who’s in love, and who is just here to use.
