present your best to me

present your best to me

 

the important thing to know is that you did nothing wrong

 

you only ever have control of your thoughts

actions

and consequences

and little to no control of what others will say and do to you

(prepare for the worst

as people are brutally honest

 

especially strangers)

 

let’s lay that out on the line for everyone to know up front

 

you did absolutely nothing wrong

 

assuming you did everything in your power to be a good person

living a good life

with good intentions

to everyone and yourself

(in other words

not being an asshole)

 

i hope that you have so far

 

if not

then get the fuck outta here

 

neither one of us has any time to waste on anyone who isn’t going to give you their all

every

time

 

you’ve got one chance to impress me

 

do it

right now

 

best foot forward

right now

 

no redo

or second chances

(unless you are truly deserving

 

but definitely no thirds)

 

here and now

 

i may not have control of what you will say and do to me

but i have full and complete control of who i keep in my life
