for the times when i didn’t know.
praise me for all the times
praise me for all the times i was
for all the times
i wasn’t worth it.
praise me for that time when
i knew i was.
when i’m acting. praise me when i’m trying to be cute.
praise me when i get home from work. praise me tomorrow. praise me loudly
and don’t apologize.
