For all the times that I was there for you, but you weren’t there for me,
For all the times I listened to you, but you were too busy to listen to me,
For all the times I had your back and you stabbed me in the back,
For all the times I believed in you, yet you didn’t believe in me.
For all the times I helped you work on your dreams, but you were too busy to help me out with mine.
For all the times I applauded your achievements, and you chose to mock mine.
For all the times I chose to lift you up and you chose to put me down.
For all the times I showed you compassion, yet you showed me no remorse.
For all the genuine smiles you returned with fake ones.
For all the genuine compliments I gave you, but you could only return in a backhanded fashion.
You showed me your truth.
For all of this and more,
I guess you thought you could break me.
I guess you thought you could keep me down.
I guess you didn’t know you were dealing with a dragon.
A caved and dormant one, yet still a dragon. A massive one.
You disturbed my peace.
You woke me up, out of my slumber.
I’m no longer asleep.
I’m no longer caved.
And for that my friend,
I Thank You!
