I Don’t Care

I don't care what your 
job is
    I want to know what 
    you stay up with the
    Moon to do

I don't care who you've 
been with
    I want to know the one 
    you still think about

I don't care what your 
favorite food is
    I want to know what 
    nourishes your soul

I don't care what your 
pet-peeves are
    I want to know what 
    lights your rage

I don't care what your 
favorite drink is
    I want to know the pain
    you're drowning away

Self Doubt

Self doubt is like 
an old lover.
The one who you 
shouldn't talk to, 
but has a way of 
showing up, or calling 
you late at night, 
reminding you that 
they still think 
about you.

But before you listen, 
and believe the 
things they say...
remind yourself that 
things aren't
always as they seem-
especially at night.

So close your ears, 
and shut your eyes.

Because I promise if 
you choose to listen, 
they won't be there 
in the morning to tell 
you whether or not
they meant what they
said.

Yourself

Staying with someone 
when you're not happy 
will never work.

You're doing them no 
favors and only hurting 
yourself.

If you stay so you
don't break their heart,
you yourself will only 
fall apart.

And the longer you 
stay, the harder 
they'll break.

And you'll end 
up alone, and not 
even have yourself.

So leave them if you're 
lonely, and don't feel 
selfish.

Because one day you'll 
wake up happy-
all by yourself.
