That Could Never Be You, I Choose Me Instead

You could never hold me in the middle of the night if I had a bad dream… 

You could never come get me if car breaks down anytime of the day

You could never come with me to one of my kids concerts or games

You could never enjoy any of the holidays with me, lighting fireworks, going to costume parties, eating dinner with family, or even dressing the Christmas tree. 

You could never be there to wipe away my tears because it’s you causing the pain

You could never be there when I really need you or even to just watch tv and do nothing

What hurts the most… I know if I asked why, it’d only be excuses that I’d hear knowing you’re lying… 

I know what I want and that could never be you, so this is goodbye because I finally choose me instead. 

I know what I deserve and not just what I can give or how I make you feel. 

It’s only God and me and He always chooses me, and He never once left me or tried to hide me or act as though He was ashamed of me.

He puts my mind at ease, by showing me how someone is supposed to love me.

It’s not about these temporary pleasures that don’t mean a thing 

I choose to ignore you instead of all the red flags

God knew what it took for me to see, and now I finally see me.

Thank you, God, for never leaving me, while I was lost in the darkness that held my mind hostage.

Feeling as though I was drowning, trying to break free from the mental prison

I have to release the anger, release the hurt, release the pain, and let it all heal

Thank you, God, for giving us grace for all our imperfections and always forgiving

I’m so proud to say that I finally choose me. 

Stay Blessed
