All

I ever wanted

was not feel a stranger

in my own life

feel comfortable around me

& those I tried to be me with

were struggling to not be

themselves

& you can see

no prizes

how all of that

just did not work out

& it’d be great to pretend

that being me was a stretch for them

but what I really learned

that them being them

was a bigger stretch for me
