Twenty Twenty

I'm finally seeing this with eyes wide open I have no clue why it took so long I'll chalk it up to hope and irrational thinking sh*t what was I thinking? I know my heart was in the right place but hers obviously wasn't even in the room must have used an industrialized broom to sweep all those issues under the rug and still had it pulled from underneath me this illogical thinking is beneath me or it should've been there's no need to pretend what's already known I was shown what it is so nevermind what I thought it could be It's time to free my mind from the superficial I just keep saying to myself "they aren't you" In the dating world I used to think If I did this, and said that, then this would equal to… what a foolish way to think, yeah it's very optimistic But man that's sick & twisted that's the thinking of my predecessors like if we're non-violent towards them their hearts will see the errors in their ways and treat us and love us equally someday but today I begin my 12 step program with acceptance Accepting things for what they are Accept that people are flawed by a wide margin Accept that time tells all so be patient and never continue in a relationship where it seems that you love harder and they seem too complacent
