Staying Myself No Matter

Like the echo of a bad love song
The broken heart repeats itself
A grieving refrain of tears and pain
The fallout of giving too much
I have a house of haunted mirrors
Reflecting this pattern of sacrifice
For they are my everything
When I decide to commit to them
My wants and needs banished
To the lonely and forgotten yonder
So I can please them and keep them
Turning myself to their great desires
And oft times away from my being
Until broken and discarded again
I begin to put myself back together
Remember what it is that I like
What my dreams and wishes were
And find the million stars in the night sky
Still shining and waiting for me
To grant myself all that I deserve
To hold on to who I have become
To allow dominion over my own life
To be no matter the circumstance
To be no matter the outcome
