Thank You

For all the times that I was there for you, but you weren’t there for me,

Thank you.

For all the times I listened to you, but you were too busy to listen to me,

Thank You.

For all the times I had your back and you stabbed me in the back,

Thank You.

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.

Thank You.

You showed me your truth.

Shocking?

At first.

Disappointing?

Yes.

For all of this and more,

Thank you.

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!
