Always and for never

I'm always
just a little
too slow.
It's funny how
I'm always
just a little
too slow.
Too slow to see
that you'd never
be there for me.
You couldn't do it
even though
it was your job.
I'm always just
a little too slow.
Too slow to see
that confidence
is merely
a statement
away.
That memories may
run deep
but that
the future should
run deeper.
I'm always
just a little
too slow.
Too slow to
read between the lines
like everybody else
To trust like
everybody
else.
But maybe
always doesn't
encompass as much
as I once
thought.
I think that
always
can mean "for now".
It has always been
but it won't always
be.
Yes.
That's my new
definition of
always.
And even though
you're not,
I'm glad that
somebody
is proud of
me.
