[Poem] 守株待兔 (Guard The Tree And Wait For The Rabbit)

Tired of always reaching out
Took a step back
I decided
Just guard the tree and wait for the rabbit
It’s okay to let myself be reached out to

Not saying I should just be passively waiting
It’s just that
I realised
Compared to actively trying to engage people who just don’t give a shit
It’s better to save my energy until someone does finally give a shit and take action when the day comes
