this is for you.
By: Jasmine Roundtree
this poem you’re reading is for you.
you think I don’t know you but I do.
this is for all the times you wake up angry
you still have regrets lingering from yesterday
this is for you because I see that you forgot to be happy
so you try to shame me for being so
this is for you because you let hours and the days and then months slip away
you let them slip because you forgot how to keep track of time
this is for you because you’re still broken from the guy who stole your purpose
this is for you because I know you can find that purpose again
this is for you because I’ve been in your shoes
this is for you because I understand your sadness
this is for your because I know why you’re hurt
damn oh damn, this is for you because I KNOW this kind hurt.
but I wanted to let you know,
this is for you because you have the ability to be happy again.
this is for you because you shine more than most
this is for you to read whenever you feel otherwise.
It’s the best of me I’m using to write this..
