If I change my opinions
My likes and dislikes, for you
It is not a compromise.
If I change myself for you
It is not an adjustment.
I am not doing so only for peace
I am not doing so only for happiness
I am not doing so because I am a doormat.
I do it because I respect you
I do it because I respect our relationship
I do it because I understand
It is for “us”.
I do not stand on the rooftops
To announce my change
Because I did not do anybody a favor
I did change myself because I wanted to
Not because I was asked to.
