Forgiveness is a thing.

A thing some people sell.

They say cut some slack

To those whom lack

The need to treat you well.

Subservience is a thing.

A thing some people do.

They try it on and act it out and

They encourage you

To follow their lead

Even if their lead

Is really only following.

They’ll be quick to say if you don’t play you

Will be alone and wallowing

In hurt.

And you’ll deserve it ’cause

Authentic isn’t free.

The rest will be, uh, less understandable...
