I owe you nothing

I owe you no yes

I made you no promises

and you’re not entitled

to anything mine


You’re so used to being on top

to making decisions

regardless of others

but I am not

your path to choose


And it’s so surprising

that it feels like pain

for being rejected

like you did before

so many times


You’re so used to believing

that everything you want

is meant for you


Well here’s what you get from me

and I’m sorry to be

the first one to let you know

but my offer to you is my biggest

and brightest and loudest and mightiest
