So I Stay

by Jessie Colon   Nov 22, 2018


Trapped in a mess
Hard to get out

Trapped in fear
I don't want to struggle

So I stay

Settling for less
Without boundaries
A woman without respect

ONLY DESIRED
NEVER VALUED

Dealing with words of disrespect
Draining emotional abuse

I'm tired
I'm tired
Yet I continue to stay

I follow temptation
Starving to feel loved
Getting it from someone else

Although I want it from you

To feel wanted
Feeling of respect
Feeling of security
I need to feel loved

Only if i can get it from you

So I stay
Settling for less
Without boundaries
A woman without respect

Hoping you change
Be the one for me
The person I believe you can be

Since I don't know my worth
Just give me a hug
It'll make everything alright

So I stay
Settling for less
Living same day everyday
