The lesson

I met a man who helped me see myself through his eyes. I chiseled away at my flaws for him. 

Casting out all my demons. 

So I could be perfect in his sight. 

I faced my fears head on for him,

Even when I wanted to take flight. 

I would kick, scream, and fight for him. 

I would do it all. 

Just so I could make him proud 

and be the girl that he wanted…

At his feet I would fall down and crawl. 

I built and rebuilt. 

I tore down and built again. 

I climbed mountains and fought my soul just so I could please him. 

And when I was ready, in front of him I stood, ready to conquer whatever obstacle that would…

DARE get in the way of this man loving me. 

You see, I met a man who helped me see myself through his eyes just fine,

The only problem was, he was too scared to look into mine.
