You deserve much better,
make no mistake.
Quiet your tongue
so his world does not shake

He thinks he rules the world,
pathetic fool,
hides behind you,
while pretending to rule

A love forced to abide,
emotional hinge.
Insecure boy,
actions make you cringe

Longed for a prince charming,
received a toad,
untie your hands,
embrace the open road

You sure deserve better,
open your eyes,
forbidden fruit,
has glued you to his side

One day you will wake up,
and finally see,
love you once gave,
served to turn your own key

You deserve so much more,
feel love within,
embrace your worth
experience more wins.

Allow your reflection
to expose your soul,
drive intentions,
regain your own control

– Grace Y. Estevez-Reddy
