Toxic Battles – A Poem

People lie.
They will lie to you.
Their words is something,
And their actions is something else.
They tell you that they care,
And that they are sorry,
But they don’t mean it.
And that hurts.
You’ll get hurt.
Your mind will start running wild
To the darkest spots of your brain.
You will think negatively,
You’ll think that this is your fault.
You blame yourself for their actions
For their hurtful behavior.
You’ll feel lonely
And that’ll make you insecure.
These actions will let you detach yourself
From everything around you,
Because you think you’re the toxic one.
And this happens over and over.
From caring, you’ll switch to hating.
Hating them
Hating yourself
Then hating them more
And then hating yourself again
For allowing them to mistreat you.
And then after all these battles,
Peace will arrive.
You will land on the shore of calmness.
At this point, you’ll realize
It wasn’t you,
It was them.
You weren’t toxic,
They had problems.
And that’s when no feelings remain
No hate, no love, no caring
You start to not care about them
And that’s when you’re unstoppable,
You become dangerous.
Because, my dear, you’ll be at peace
Not only with yourself,
But with them, too.
That’s the point where you don’t care
About whatever they do.
Their presence is equal to their absence.
I hope you get there safe
It’s a long journey
But you can and will do it.
