Thank You, Thank You - Poem by Bridget Bush

Thank you, thank you
I've lifted me up where you left me down
Brushed off the water when you left me to drown
For all the hurt you gave to me
And all the lies you made me see
I thank you, thank you
For being a mistake I learned from
instead of always giving I'll take some
Making yourself the one I love to hate
Opening my eyes before it's too late
so I thank you, thank you
I want much more from life than you can give
I want to die happy, but first I want to live
You're the one that made it possible it's true
For showing me I don't want to be like you
And I thank you, thank you
I wipe away the dirt you threw in my afce
I burn the bridges you tried to put in place
For all the times you left my crying
It's about time that you're the one dying
And I thank you, thank you

    It is a blessing to be able to thank your adversaries, opponents or enemies; they can only make you smarter and stronger to deal with the future. The dirt will go away; that same dirt will bury the perpetrators. I enjoyed this poem very much. (Report) Reply

    From the failures one understands and comes up to a well developed state and one has to thank one responsible for that! (Report) Reply
