What does it take?

What does it take to make you feel the worth of what you really feel you are?

For people to understand and appreciate?

But when it is family they say this is not needed and to expect so you are being selfish!

I sit here floricking in silence as they all sleep staring at my keyboard looking for more words to come out faster.

I used to be here faster content regardless of what folks thought.

Words don’t feel friends anymore and keyboard reminds me of correspondence with teachers.

He was right you can’t blame someone for what you are. I was of the same belief once and then he was brought into my life where my parents told me to be a good wife and a mother.

Its hard not to follow the norm. You are set in the mindset from when you are little. I secretly always wished things would change till one day I said I need to give up on expectations and embrace the positives.

I wish I could read minds.

I am lost for words but I know its too late now to be myself as once you are a parent you stay one all your life.

I guess it starts with a wife ?

I wonder again… Is it the applause I await?

I think it doesn’t matter all I want is myself back to stay content. Is it much to ask?



One thought on “What does it take?”

  1. Work for a cause, not for applause. You don’t need others to like you. You need you to love you
