Mental Picture

Once someone has a mental picture
manifested,
sketched,
painted and stored away
into their mind

about who you are
and why you are the way you are

…sometimes there’s really nothing
you can do
that will ever be good enough
to change that preconceived misconception.

Relationship Dilemma

She tried to change for him
but she couldn’t do it for him
no matter what led her
to believe she was doing
what was best for her relationship

She needed a change
but she had to do it for herself

If she did it (for him)
he’d say he never asked her
to transform into somebody else

and even though, he’d probably prefer the new “her”
they would end up resenting each other
for something she had burdened herself with.
