I understand it takes time

To get past some things

It’s built into our lives

Things not being as important

As they once were- before

So, I tell myself lately

That you’re just practicing

To go through each day

With lessor and lessor

Of any thoughts about me

Whether or not it hurts

Whether or not if I care

Whether or not if it matters    

I’ll have to get used to it too

This is why I feel smaller

Today- than I did yesterday

You must be getting better at  

Forgetting all about… me
