Lately I have realized something about myself that I never have before,

And I wish it hadn't taken me long to realize that when one closes, there is always another door.

I have this new found faith in myself that I am very proud of that I wished I had discovered in the past,

But since it took me longer to find, I know that this time it is going to last. 

I realized now that I don't need your love,

And since you pushed me to the side, this time it is me that is going to give you the shove.

I know that this may sound harsh, but to be honest, I don't really care,

Because you had the person who was willing to give you everything standing right there.

I wish I realized before that I don't wait for anyone because I deserve so much more,

So before it closed, I slamed it shut while you were on the other side of that door.

And it was hard, I am not going to say it wasn't, but I had a big smile on my face when I did it,

And that's me realizing my worth, and that I don't have to put with anyone's bullshit.

I am over the heartbreak, the tears and the crying,

And from now on I am going to be focusing on me, and I am going to be working and thriving.

I'll see you very soon, ninety three days to be exact, 

And when you see me, you are going to regret saying no to me, and that's a fact. 

Believe me, sooner or later the roles will be reversed, and when you see me you won't know what to do,

And you'll be begging me to give you a chance, but guess what, I'm already done with you.

So go ahead *********, go ahead and be with *******, because one day you will look at me and be sad,

And you are going to regret letting me go and you are going to say, "Damn, that's what I could have had?"
