I have heard them say,
“People will only treat you the way you allow them to treat you.”
I was put in a place and all was barren,
music played but every note was empty of song.
Stripped of all melodies
I heard lyrics,
It is not only you allowing people to treat you a certain way,
they are but a reflection of how you treat yourself,
a mirror of your mind and emotions.
Those that you have wasted time on,
you have first wasted on the illusion of self.
If I allow others to lie to me,
I have first lied to my self.
For some moments there are no lyrics,
only the music of self.
