The Sum Of What I Wanted

I just wanted you to be proud.

But you always said it was better to be good than proud.

So I kept all my promises and appointments and I paid all my dues and debts.

So I'm good.

Please, be proud.

Proud of you indeed

You will know me from the way I speak said...

I am.

I never really wanted you to be good. I was so afraid that I was not. I saw so deeply that you were, and every lie I'd ever been told was lit on fire
