You discuss my failures loud,
my attempt at being more than what I was and am now.
It changed me.
You discussed me…
Laughed at me for trying, when you remained the same.
I attempted to dream, you stayed the same…
You discussed me.
When I succeeded,
you told all about my past, ridiculing my success and trying to dim my path.
I laugh in the face of my enemy, and feed them passion fruit.
For their life has been lived through me.
I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to be you.
Just as you couldn’t imagine what it would be like to be me.
To live the life you see.
