For You
by Jason Tomlinson

It’s for you
not for her
not for him
just for you
not for them
there is no missing validation
no further need for emancipation
you’re already free to enjoy what you’ve got
it’s perfect whether a little or a lot
don’t let anyone’s misunderstanding get in your way
don’t let their disapproval for a moment stay
it was never theirs to receive
despite what they may choose to believe
it was yours and it is yours now
run with it enjoy it this is how
you were meant to arrive at pleasure and health
this is your treasure this is your wealth
