This Is My Ego - Poem by AnneMarie Hewlett

You know who I am
You know my story,
But you don’t know why I’m standing here
Tonight,
Just listen,
Don't be in a hurry,
I’m trying to make it clear,
To make you see

Well I know I've acted foolish,
But I promise you no more
Within a few minutes, I won’t be here
I won’t be here anymore

I'm not here to say I'm sorry,
Not here to right a wrong
And I'm not here to say I'm ready
But I'm finally moving on
I'm here to let your love go,
I’m giving up, letting go
So I’m not here to win your heart or soul,
This is my ego.

I can see the tears in your eyes,
No guilt wrecks my soul,
I’m telling you the truth
That I don’t care anymore
You wanted someone better
Now I’m giving you the chance
You’ve played with my emotions
Now I’m finally taking them back

I'm not here to say I'm sorry,
Not here to right a wrong
And I'm not here to say I'm ready
But I'm finally moving on
I'm here to let your love go,
I’m giving up, letting go
So I’m not here to win your heart or soul,
This is my ego.

You can stop trying to believe
that we will be leaving together,
So when I say I don’t love you,
I mean it forever and ever,
ever and ever....

I'm not here to say I'm sorry,
Not here to right a wrong
And I'm not here to say I'm ready
But I'm finally moving on
I'm here to let your love go,
I’m giving up, letting go
So I’m not here to win your heart or soul,
This is my ego.
