Generosity, What For?

I have spent a lot of my life hiding how I feel

Not speaking up when it matters,

Now I have never had trouble speaking up for others

But what about myself?

I have knowingly let others take advantage of me never speaking up

Never fighting for me for my right to be happy

I could have been so successful at a young age had I done that

I would offer to help anyone around me without thinking about what I need

You need a few dollars, here, I can go without setting aside

You need a place to stay? Sure I will help

Who cares those people spend all the money on pleasure

No plan to get out

One time I faked getting evicted just to get a couple out

No more, I will speak for my truth, myself, my life

I will not allow another moment to go by where I don’t speak my truth

Letting the ache build within

Now it’s time to heal myself and grow again
