Forgetting Mine

I’m happy where I am

Something I couldn’t say before today

Yesterday I wanted to be everything

Tomorrow, nothing

That I wasn’t created to be

I understand my limitations

Adept at creating abbreviations

But content to let nature do its job

I used to want scores of friends

Now the few I have barely speak to me

And I’m okay with that

(And just so you know, I care for them

I just don’t expect texts everyday

Cause we’re adults

And we’ve got lives to live)

Because I traded my name on their tongue

For the words in their hearts

I traded popularity for silence

And peace of mind

I didn’t ask for a girlfriend

Because I don’t want to end up

Like my dad

Ruining another woman’s life

Because I was too afraid to admit

I don’t make a great living partner

Or any partner at all

Faulty socially, useless

Romantically

And always forgetting your favorite color

Is it because

Someone forgot mine?

I'm interested in hearing what you have to say
