I want to be selfish.

I want to feel my feelings
on the outside
not hide them inside.

I want to cry in front of the world
instead of hiding in my room
with my tears.

I want to make decisions
based on my wants and needs
not those of others.

I want to take what I want
instead of saving it all
for someone else.

I want to be heard.

I want to matter.

I want to come first.

I want to be selfish.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  3. I feel I’ve been thinking of people’s feelings more than my own. Especially romantically in an unrequited love. When you want to know their wants and needs more than your own. But now I’ve managed to be selfish for my own needs and cry when I need to instead of holding it in. <3!
