The letdowns come one after another And at times together As if one will not hurt enough. And the tears The tears keep falling Like they are your silent screams. The one who set this in motion You trusted him You know you’ll never forgive.
It was a promise You pinned your hopes on It was a future You knew you owned. But it doesn’t happen Like it’s supposed to It came crashing down Like a brick on you. So for self-respect You refuse to just take it And for self-preservation You choose to quit.
