“Live with it,” he said.
“You selfish, cruel, unrelenting, materialistic,
Shallow, disgusting, awful, crazy person,
Why don’t you move on ahead?”
I’d never understand people, you know
How do you claim to love someone
When all you give them is your hate
When you’re not the same anymore
And blame the other person, instead?
Everyone has a story.
Most of us tell it some way or the other
Some of us keep it inside our heads
Is it a sin we couldn’t be as vocal?
We try to cover up for all the loss
We distract ourselves, we don’t talk about things
We detach ourselves from the locals
Does this mean you’re allowed to judge
Who gave you that power?
Who died and made you such a God
So unyielding in your opinions, you won’t budge?
“Live with my hatred,” you say
I’d take it, I’d live with it
I’d go about my life, emotionless
Than be with you, anyway
What were you doing when there was trouble
I was broken, you were meant to be whole
It isn’t your job to fix me now,
Go live with yourself in your self absorbed bubble
And me? I will just learn to live with it
Like you asked me to
You described me the way I am, you said
Keep judging – I shall live with it.
