Reflection

at what point
                         she asked
did I decide I was worth
less

at what point
                         she asked
did I decide he was worth
more

at what point
                          she asked
did I decide
did I
         decide

I said
            nothing

but if I had

if I had
I would have said

you decided
at the point you
                               settled

you decided
at the point you
                              looked
in the mirror and saw
what the world
                             wanted
you to see

instead of what you
                                       are
