“You bide your time,
You stay afloat,
You try to feel the Sun upon your bones…
Some people don’t understand
that just to give someone attention
and to show them that you’re interested in getting to know them
You don’t have to.
You want to
and that itself should mean something to them.
You believe some people think that the world owes them something
but the truth is that the world doesn’t owe you anything.
Whenever you feel love
or even fair treatment
from someone else,
for even a moment,
it is a miracle and a blessing within itself.”
