I’ll be able to look you in the eyes
I’ll keep waiting for the Right One.
As I pull away. My eyes open.
And I find peace inside of myself.
My course is strong. My aim is true.
I want to do this
and not a damn thing you can say or do
will stop me.
I will not regret my experiences.
I will not regret my words.
I will not regret my actions.
I will stand strong.
I will stand firm.
With my back strong.
With my head held high.
I will be judged by many.
Praised by few.
Hated by you and others.
But I will never be faulted for being weak.
I am misguided sometimes.
I am stupid others.
I am not what you want, or what others want.
Because none of you are the Right One.
I will hold onto my beliefs.
I will hold against insults.
I will believe in myself.
I will know I am good enough.
I will give myself sparingly.
I will want for nothing I cannot make myself.
I will stand by my friends, even if they turn their backs on me.
I will have honour.
I will have grace.
I will have dignity.
But none of this means anything to you.
Because you do not understand anything about me.
You hate me because I have found the door.
And I finally walked through it.
