rejection

Do I deserve this
This cold shit
I show love always
Genuine as they come

A Wise man said

you can’t always get everything you want

"Fuck that"
Never sat well with rejection

A Wise man said

Well learn to embrace it
You could only gain from it

"Gain what?

Wisdom
Knowledge
The lesson that not everything you
Want is what you need..

—  J.Alfred “A Wise Man Said”
