    Chorus:
    I don't wanna be what i've come to be
    I don't wanna do it, anything but this
    I don't wanna live my whole life in fear
    I just gotta be anything but this

    Verse 1:
    Only been a year
    and my life has changed I feel
    sometimes gets a little better
    but right now i ain't together
    try not to think about every ounce i've strained
    but instead i try to focus on the small things that i've gained

    and i've lost love by betrayal
    gone far from the spiritual
    gone blind from stupidity
    And i can only blame me
    Found love and ignored it
    thought i could avoid it
    but it only made me realized that i ain't happy

    Chorus:
    I don't wanna be what i've come to be
    I don't wanna do it, anything but this
    I don't wanna live my whole life in fear
    I just gotta be anything but this

    Verse 2:
    Mama, Daddy i love you
    through two decades you worked hard
    to provide for me constantly
    I know i put you through hell
    but i'll let you know
    i'm learning i can ask you for help
    I'm proud of you
    love you
    and sorry for sins I can't tell

    Chorus:
    I don't wanna be what i've come to be
    I don't wanna do it, anything but this
    I don't wanna live my whole life in fear
    I just gotta be anything but this

    Hook:
    I'm hurting deeply inside
    with one look you wouldn't know that I'm wiping my eyes
    I'm breaking so far from the right
    that for now i'm stayin' to protect my own life

    Chorus 2:
    I feel so alone
    and I want to grow
    don't where to begin
    so God forgive my sins

    Cuz i don't wanna be...

    Sometimes we can't see how we have become just what we have, but we are all still growing and changing. So good to read something new from you poet.
