Rise Above It.

No one is responsible for you

Even when you feel they should be

No one is responsible for you even

When you think they owe you a lot

Life is not as complicated as we make it seem

The person you helped today

Might turn a blind eye to you tomorrow

Deception is real, just as most people's character

So beating yourself up for someone's deception

Would always keep you defeated no matter what

Did they betray you? That's perfectly fine

But do you have to betray yourself as well?

Deprive yourself of life due to someone's selfishness?

This is your life and no one would teach you how to live it

You are responsible for your outcomes

The good, the bad, the beautiful and the ugly

It's time to look within and rise above your hurts

You can't even afford to be bitter, not one bit

Because those who hurt you today

Might be the same people that would lift you tomorrow

Keep being bitter and you lose what might lie ahead

No one is responsible for you but you

They pull you down today but can lift you tomorrow

Help, give and be you without expecting much in return

It helps to keep your sanity in check

Without waiting for the person who will write the cheque

I have learned to rise above everything

Accept the outcomes I know I can't change

While looking forward to better days

Whether from those who have hurt me or not

Thank you for your time.


My pen doesn't bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.

Still me,

My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.
