if you want someone
who gets you
who appreciates and trusts in you
you gotta appreciate, trust
and know thyself
you gotta be transparent
about what you stand for
and who you really are
how could you expect someone to truly trust in you
when you are ambivalent yourself?
how could you expect someone to truly appreciate you
when your own self-esteem keeps fluctuating?
how could you expect someone to truly believe in you
when you believe in yourself only half-heartedly?
go first bitch,
and the balls to face rejection, humiliation and failure
you can’t lose what truly belongs to you
go all in
let the chips fall where they may
