Raised Standards

I have decided to love myself first

 in this life I live

Because before, by fake fondness I’ve been submersed

And so I got tired of the same twisted turn

Of giving all the love I could give

Without getting any in return

So I’ve raised my standards

I now see what I am

And feel

I don’t deserve

Anything less than a man

that loves me for real
