People say I hate you for what you have done
But in reality, I appreciate everything you have and haven't done.
In fact, I thank you.
I thank you for being weak
For I have learned to be strong.
I thank you for becoming the person you are,
For I have learned to never be like you.
I thank you for being the first to break my heart,
For now I am immune to pain.
I thank you for showing me death,
For one I can truly live.
I thank you for leaving me no history,
For now I can make my own.
I thank you for leaving me behind,
For now I understand what it is like to be truly abandon.
Though I thank you, this is my final goodbye.
I am tired.
Not the I ran a marathon tired;
Not like a man who wakes up early in the morning to work long hours to only wake up the next morning to do to all over again tired;
But the irritated tired.
Tired of being disappointed.
Tired of being second choice.
Tired of wanting to be wanted.
I appreciate everything you have and haven’t done
For without you there would be no me
I thank you but I must leave you behind like you left me.
