And one day you’ll become so unapologetic
about not caring that these clouds
won’t scream at his ignorance.
They’ll admire your independence
in choosing you over your beloved.
You won’t cry about him leaving,
those colours that he painted you in will get faded.
Soon you’ll realise that efforts, when done
in a relationship, would from the two sides.
Balance is required in everything.
You’ll be a bird so free in the sky,
that you never desire to be caged again.
One day you’ll realise that you are better off alone
than to be with the wrong human and calling your love home.
