"Helpless", Dae Lee (Daeizm)
— [inspired by the word given to me by Nae Lee; a part of my mini-project #WordsFromSouls]
You go through it all for people.
You give them your spine so their life can be as firm as it can be.
You fight for them.
Even when they push you away and through your spine back at you, you fight. You watch them seek happiness without. You come at peace with it. Because you realize what makes you happy is them being happy. You settle with even a piece of them. They tell you they don’t want that. You respect it.
And even still— when you follow everything by their request, when you give all you could, despite it threatening your life, for finally taking the hint, for acting according to their behavior toward you, you’re wrong. Because everything they left unsaid is uttered in hindsight, even when their actions toward you contradict those very words, you’re wrong.
