Not yours

You don’t get to celebrate my thriving

You don’t get to feel good about my success

You didn’t want my mess

You don’t deserve my happiness

I’m flourishing in spite of you

And you don’t get to share

I don’t think you’re aware

Of how much of me you broke

How much of me it took

You don’t get to applaud

How I managed to repair

The damage you’ve done

This smile is mine

Brought on

By the strength I found

In the ruins of us
