ODE TO PLAYERS

I have found…                                                                                                                               I am capable of                                                                                                                   Taking out my own trash.                                                                                                        

I have learned…                                                                                                                         To get my oil changed                                                                                                             On time.                                                                                                                                           

I can check my tire pressure                                                                                              And fluid levels.                                                                                                       Therefore…                                                                                                                                    

I will not tolerate                                                                                                                 Being lied to                                                                                                                                 Or be played for a fool.                                                                                                          

My kittens are Fluffy and warm.                                                                                             I pay my own bills.                                                                                                                    So please…                                                                                                                              

Save your bullshit                                                                                                                    For someone who                                                                                                                 Can’t chop their own firewood.

I'll forgive you long before I forgive myself. I'll push you away while I am longing to hold you. I find myself thinking of how much you mean to me..without saying it nearly enough. My son is teaching me how to love, laugh, and live:)
