you know how to use what you got
to get what you want.
but you never had to put much
effort into that because it just came easy.
people swarmed you like flies on shit.
you didnt realize, when you came,
knockin on my door, that i wasnt a fly.
you werent the only shit in town anymore.
i know how that goes.
we get one gift in life,
this one “core” gift branches
into other small particles of gifts,
all of it entangeled together for
a purpose, gifted, specifically for you.
gifted by the universe
and it truly is up to us,
up to you,
on how we/you utilize it.
you dont have to use yours for bad anymore.
you dont have to continue living
the way you have always known.
you dont have to believe that i
am too far ahead of you,
for you to catch up to me.
i am no different than you,
i too, used my gift poorly.
and it took genuine, unconditional,
to show me the purpose of my gift.
to show me true, love.
what will it take for you, my dear?
