I don’t need you
second guessing my happiness
and judging my choices in life
because I haven’t taken the same path as you.
The same path that we travelled together
hand in hand
for so many years.
If that path were still for me
don’t you think that you would still be for me too?
I ventured off that path for a reason
and we will both be better for it.
You can thank me later
but for now,
let me live in peace.
