Any day now

You’ll be glad you left
That toxic relationship.
The pain won’t be as fresh
The rejection won’t be as raw
Your need for their pat on your back
Won’t itch so bad anymore
And you’ll find that
Wings are better than cages
Even though they
Will always have something to say
About the way you flap them.
Any day now
You’ll come of age
When you’ll be okay
With their disapproval.
Any day now
You won’t feel the need
To prove them wrong,
Won’t crave the rush
Of vain competition,
Any day now
You’ll be free.
