Steady

Updated on November 5, 2015

Because Of You!

Steady

I misunderstood you

Thought you were someone else

Don’t really have much else to say

Except

I’m sorry

I wish I had been nicer to you

When I had the chance

Wish I could’ve taken the time to read you

Complicated as it may seem

Expected you to be there

Even when I didn’t need you

I explained too much

You may say it wasn’t enough

Studdered out every word

Wanted to make you proud

Of me

Struggled to be proud of myself

You pointed out everything I did wrong

Praised me in your own way

I’ve done everything right

Everything you asked me to do

I did everything

You expected me to do

Now I’m done

I’m doing what you forced me to do

Tired

Weak in your eyes

Motivated from a past that taught me

About you

I haven’t got anymore to say

Because I’ve said it all

You’ve taught me nothing

What I didn’t already know in the first place

I’m seeing it now

Than I did back then

Hid behind your mask

Played I love you

I loved you too

Now I’ve lost you

And won myself back

Never sure who that was

Until yesterday

Now I know what I must do

Was empty for so long

I’m searching for the new me

That I lost so long ago

Found myself in love

Seeing him fullfills me

The way you never could

Even though you should

What I Meant To Do

I tried so hard

For no reason

I believed you

Fooled I was supposed to

I know better now

What I meant to do

Put on your own show

And I’m the freak

Keep laughing

It’s all you know how to do

I’d be laughing too

If I pushed away

Someone I only thought I knew

I tried so hard

For no reason

I believed you

Fooled I was supposed to

I know better now

What I meant to do

Lived my life in your movie

I was always in a movie

In every movie

I am your favorite character

But, that’s all

You are to me

It’s all you’ll ever be

I tried so hard

For no reason

I believed you

Fooled I was supposed to

I know better now

What I meant to do

No example was right or wrong

Doesn’t make up for what you did

I’m bigger and stronger

I can handle it all now

Not because of what you taught me

But, because of what you didn’t

I tried so hard

For no reason

I believed you

Fooled I was supposed to

I know better now

What I meant to do

Everyone Gets A Second Chance

      These are quite delicate lines of emotions and you reminded me of the hub I've written long ago entitled, The Catfish.

      And yes, we all deserved a second chance...a much better chance.

      I like your chosen title (s) and it was a pleasure reading this hub.
