CONDITIONAL LOVE

CONDITIONAL LOVE

Sometimes love
comes with
conditions

The love that
I’ve received
and the love that
I’ve been given

I’ve learned over
the years to never
take “gifts” from
“strangers”

In thier eyes
food, transportation
and shelter
were gifts

But once I did
I was thiers to
play with

To control
To manipulate
To guilt

So in turn
I’ve learned
that the only
person I need

And the only
person I can
and will depend
on from now on
is myself

Don’t ever think
that I need your
“things” or your
love to survive

When what I need
is this time to heal,
to grow stronger
and to just let
myself thrive
