    pressure was piling up
    so i got on my knees and dialed up
    to the lord
    had to figure out my position
    cuz i was losing ambition
    struggling has always been a tradition
    but its worse when loved ones dont bother to listen

    gave my all in the process while sacrificing so much
    i finally understand love and now im capable of identifying lust
    my true friends stuck around while my fake ones disappeared
    loniless has always been my sidekick so that was never a fear
    maybe it was failure or it might have been the success
    i wasnt ready to face it, but then again i wasnt ready to rest

    im not completely healed, only time conceals that
    but i felt it was time to get my writing skills back
    for the past couple of months ive had to reconstruct my confidence
    cuz trying to be something im not, demolished it
    i was changing myself in order to change someone else's personality
    i didnt even realize it until i couldnt recognize my individuality
    its crazy how dreams and reality never seem to cross
    and it sucks cuz u never notice a problem until those dreams are lost

    but luckily, god watches me and protects my soul
    he made me take a break to recollect my goals
    i asked someone to pray for me and they obviously did
    cuz i needed jesus as i unconsciously backslid
    i took the break to find peace of mind and i achieved it
    i missed yall... im back, please believe it...
