I don’t shy away from trouble, but I shy away from jealous hearts.
With trouble, there’s always an opposite side of the coin, but with jealousy, nobody can show them through except themselves. and I’d rather not rely on ppl to overcome their jealousy. I’d rather be safe from them.
In trouble, there’s a chance of 70 excuses, forgiveness, or moving on. whatever happens, you have freedom of choice.
In the heat of jealousy, there’s no protective shade to shelter you from the burning rays.
We may imagine ourselves making it through
Getting a degree and then making good money
Owning a home and then starting a family
With the happily ever after theme
But there’s one word that holds us back from achieving our dreams
From standing up to the crowd
About what’s right and wrong
Fighting for a better world
With peace and justice
I’m laughed at or don’t find love
Or become sick and
I fall into debt
What if I don’t get a job in this degree
Lose my friends
If my spouse turns into an abuser
And takes all my money
If my child becomes sick or I raise her alone
Or I vaccinate her and she gets autism
Lose my house and property, and all support
What if all my hopes come crushing down
To my feet
Begging me to dig myself a grave
Cursing me for being brave
Yet not trying hard enough
To escape fate
as long as you’re alive you can make things meaningful
doesn’t matter how or when just as long as you leave those ifs behind cuz bad things happen and it’s so you can do something about it and become who you Are as cheesy and escalated as it sounds but die with dignity and with something to be proud of- which is you. Don’t let the bad things devour you to your death.
