When They Don’t Love You Back

The only thing more exhausting than
Loving someone who does not love you back,
Is hoping they will eventually come around.
So when someone isn’t ready for us,
We try harder.
We continue to show up in hopes
That they will want us back.
But they truth is,
If someone isn’t ready for you,
For the glory of you,
And the uniqueness of you,
Then they simply are just not ready.
But don’t let that shrink you,
And don’t let it make you become less of a person.
When people say they are not ready for you,
It also means you will never get the best of them.
And you deserve everything of the best,
That’s why,
whatever it is you are seeking from other people,
Try to find a way to give it to yourself.
Because love shouldn’t be a war,
You have to fight to keep hold of.
And at the times where you feel like
You have nothing left to give,
And your heart is running on empty,
I want you to remember,
You are too full of everything that makes you whole
To ever be loved in halves….
