Did you find my persistence endearing?
I tried, I swear, I tried so hard but
it’s so difficult to forget about the
things that were said

I’ve done my best now it’s your turn
to survive the anguish of uncertainty
I hope you can find the silver lining
in the clouds that are soon to disperse

I wanted everything
and learned to appreciate nothing
but there was something
that brought me back to you
I’m tired of believing
in the demeaning
fables I never wanted to be true

I’m only for patient for so long
until I become frustrated and cynical
Sometimes I wish I was headstrong
because I’m sick of others opinions

I’d keep this all inside but it’s too painful
to let myself be overcome by such poisonous feelings
I’ll bite the bullet if you promise
to always be true

The End
