I thought I was done with toxicity,
But I find myself surrounded by it.
In my personal life,
In my friendships,
In my friends relationships,
In my interactions with strangers.
I do my best to avoid it where I can,
Because I don’t need anymore reminders
Of fists in the walls of my safe space,
Or my own doors being held shut on me,
But it seems to always find its way here.
I’m in a weird place right now but,
where do I take my own internal struggle
When the people I take them to are hurting too?
