some people never grow up

Today I was told,

“You have to be okay

with losing friends”,

and I thought to myself

what pain I’d have been spared

if I had heard that



I am mine

my emotions are not your

pick-and-choose toys,

the ones you like

adored, the

ones you don’t


I am not yours to

build in a way that

pleases you,

I am not yours,

I am not yours.
