Never unsure


I was never unsure about holding anybody’s hand,

I knew if I wanted someone in my life

was always ready for heartbreak if they leave.

That’s how I made myself strong

by letting everybody inside my heart.

I never asked people to leave,

I never closed my doors either.

I wasn’t forever for some people

but for someone, I was their home.

They came hugged me and stayed

whenever they wanted to be warm.

I never forced existence.

I knew from the very beginning of every relation

that how I wanted it to be.

Never changed loving people,

Even when I never got that love back.

Urging someone to stay for me

is asking for a place that never belonged

to me in the first place.
