You ever wondered why
You chose the person who doesn’t care?
The person who has a propensity
To struggle with showing affection
You ever wished you could love the ones
That wants to be your world
The one who would make you their world
Why is it that you want time?
From the only person that doesn’t have any?
From the person who has so many other priorities?
Who would never make you their priority?
It’s like making them your first choice,
While you are just an option in theirs
Meanwhile right in front of you
You have a gem,
That might not be what you think you need
In the meantime they are exactly what you require
Sometimes we spend too much time on wishful thinking
Instead of embracing the obvious
Only because you look for complicated
When you can get uncomplicated
Coupled with that sense of being treasured
Being a priority
Why do you continue to chase complicated?
