You selfishly abandoned me
but do you not realize
that in doing so,
you also abandoned yourself?
You walked away from the one person
that truly cared about you.
You walked away from the one
who knew you best and would never
have hurt you.
In your quest to live a fake life,
trying to be something you’re not,
trying to impress those who just
do not matter,
you have lost yourself.
I miss the old you, sister,
the one I could talk with and laugh with,
the one who didn’t care about money and status.
I have nothing in common with the new you,
nothing at all.
But I still would have loved you
had you not walked away.
You threw away an unconditional love.
You threw away a piece of yourself.
I hope it was worth it.
