As We Got Older

As we got older we got new and bigger responsibilities,
We got told what to do, directions to follow
You taught me to go against the flow, but now I know the truth
Yes the flow isn’t always right but it’s stable and safer

As we got older I grew wiser realizing who to trust
You were not on my trustworthy list as I got wiser
To many stabs in the back makes you become wiser with your trust
I’m gonna leave before you sharpen your knife

As we got older I realized there is healing from the pain you caused
The recovery started when you were gone
I no longer feel the pain that you caused
Because it will not happen again

As we got older I realized not only am I special
I am chosen, but not by you
I was taught I was not only chosen but loved
A special loved person
