It Was Me Who Let You Keep Me On Hold - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It is not about you.
Although it had been,
For a number of years.

I awakened in a new mood.
And it was not attitude.
It was a consciousness.

No longer did I feel a need,
To be there for others...
Without my own needs addressed.

I am addressing my needs.
And you may believe it is selfishness.
After I awakened I just cared about what I felt.

And I feel blessed to realize,
Part of my life has been kept...
To live in the pleasing of myself.

It is not about you.
Although it had been,
For a number of years.

Now it is about me!
My needs and wants.
With desires missed I have yet to live.

It is not about you.
It was.
And it was me who let you keep me on hold.
