Just don’t give a damn
By Frankie Darcell
Forgive me if what I’m about to say sounds harsh. But I do so because I’m done. Done with your opinion of me and what I do. Your opinion has made me, on occasion, change what I believed to be the best route for my journey. I gave what you had to say about my life more value than my own wants and desires for me. So forgive me if when you speak to me I look at and through you as if you are a stranger, because from your mouth to my ears I believe only a person I did not know would ask me to give up on my dream. I sacrificed, I’ve waited patiently for my turn to come and it never did. The kids, the house, the career, the timing — I waited and my turn never came in this relationship. So forgive me if what you have to say means nothing to me anymore. In other words, I just don’t give a damn.
