So That I May

So That I May

 

I don’t walk backwards

I don’t dwell in the past

I don’t look back

I don’t repeat the same mistake

I don’t give trust

I don’t seek vengeance

I don’t hold grudges

I don’t take people for granted

I don’t withhold love

I don’t mistake kindness for weakness

 

I don’t look down my nose

I don’t keep up with the Jones 

I don’t entertain foolishness

I don’t pretend

I don’t hold my tongue

 

I don’t hate or fear what I don’t understand

I don’t place blame

I don’t pass judgment

I don’t refer to queens as bitches

I don’t refer to kings as dogs

 

I don’t waste precious time

I don’t forfeit

I don’t settle

I don’t waiver

I don’t, so that I may
