Off Road

I was brave so I trusted you
I was strong so I supported you
I was full so I believed in you
I was wise so I prepared to lose
I was self-concious so I lowered standards
I was understanding so I made exceptions
I was mistaken.

Now I see a different light
A future with fewer tears
Now I know what I am worth
And that a strong man can take my strength
Perpetual kindness is a sign of distrust
The next time this happens, I will expand it.

There will be no more excuses
There will be no more concessions
When I see them slipping away Iíll cut them off
If I believe in them more than they do me, I will go
I will never carry someone at the expense of my own growth
I will never give them more trust than they deserve

I will never underestimate my worth.
