a free verse poem by Haley
I will not beg, I will not plead
If you don’t wanna be in my life just shut up and leave
It’s a two way street don’t stoop to lies and deceit
A phone works both ways, don’t leave me incomplete
True colors show in tough times
Will you be the pastel or the grime?
Be authentic or be nothing;
For this relationship is rusting
You can depict
But you can’t be real
There’s more shame in that because it makes it harder to heal
Two faces are never pretty
It’s the character in you I pity.
