When I give, it does not come with strings.
I’m not keeping track of what you owe me.
When I give, I choose to do so without ulterior motives.
I give because I’m genuine.
I give because I know what it’s like to be without, to long for and be ignored, to speak and not be heard, to care for and have nothing returned.
When I give it’s because I get it.
It’s because I know the value in what I have in my heart and I refuse to let the world stop me from sharing that.
But when things start being taken for granted.
When you no longer appreciate my sincerity.
I won’t switch, I won’t get angry, and I won’t be spiteful.
I’ll just get smart and I’ll change your role in my life.
Because when I give, I’m all in.
But when I’m done, there’s no looking back.
