I wake up to greet life everyday.
I extended a handshake and it took two steps away.
I admit, I’m a little rough around the edges.
but constantly getting smooth out by life’s blessings.
I know enough to know I don’t know it all
but things that were once subtle
I’m aware of them all.
I’m aware of my flaws
along with cause
of failed relationships.
Blatant hate and shit
For no other reason
other than jealously.
That was the jealous me
A heart full envy
With a mind telling me “they’re better than me”,
My heart is no longer sore.
I am no longer fluent in the language hate.
I know now that things are not always supposed to be okay.
I’m no longer entitled
I no longer have any rivals.
There’s no competition.
On the other side,
the grass may look greener but there’s nothing missing.
I learned to listen,
I learned to love.
I know there’s a plan for me even if there is no Godly thing or man above.
That’s why I greet life everyday
I extend a handshake and say
“Hi, I’m Tay”.
