I am no longer going to let you get in my head and make me feel like there is something wrong with me,

All because you can't see all of the potential that I have and all of the things that I can be.

Or maybe, that is the problem, and it is something that you are scared of,

And that is why you felt like I was never worthy of your love.

Looking at it now, it is not that I wasn't worthy, it's because I was too good for you,

And it wasn't my fault like I thought, but it was really nothing that you can do.

Even though I told you over and over again how I would really feel,

For some reason, you still questioned whether or not it was real.

And that is not my problem, it sounds like you have some things to figure out,

But one thing is for sure, that you are no longer going to make me feel any type of doubt.

After dealing with this for three years, I am finally going to let you go,

Because it is my time to finally heal and allow myself to grow.

I am no longer going to be the one hiding in your shadow,

And I am just going to sit back and let you enjoy the show.

I have realized that in my life, I have seven people who I know I can rely on,

And I am no longer living in the past and worrying about the people who have come and gone.

At the end of the day, I'll keep my circle small with people who I know I can trust,

And I am going to live my life for me, and everyone else around me can adjust.

Whether they like it or not, I am focusing on me, and no one is going to stand in my way,

And I know it won't be easy, but I am just going to take it day by day.

I am focsuing on me, and the ones who never made me question how loyal they are,

Because they are the ones who are going to help me heal every scar.

I know it won't be easy, but everything gets better with time,

Even if there still is that little part of me that is sad that you were never mine.

As time goes on, the conversations that we had will start to fade,

And so will every memory that we once made.

But when I hear from you, I don't know what I will do,

Because I am expecting it from you, and I know that it is nothing new.

But this time, I don't know if I am going to give you a reply,

Because I can't keep letting you back in once my eyes are finally dry.

This time, I am going to focus on my and becoming the best that I can,

And I am no longer worrying about you, because you are still a boy, and I deserve a man.
