    I thought I knew me.
    But who am I really?
    This life’s options just
    aren’t appealing.
    They don’t fit my destiny
    or the dreams I had for me,
    as a child.
    I watch with wild eyes
    as the fire slowly dies
    on my hopes –
    Unable to cope
    when my head
    bumped the glass ceiling
    and all I’m feeling
    is stuck in a rut.
    I can’t describe
    how it felt last night
    when you said
    we weren’t right
    for each other anymore.
    The humility of just being
    is so lonely –
    at times.
    I can hardly watch the sun rise
    cause the splendor hurts my eyes
    and I’m left to cry
    salty tears that leave tracks
    in my flawless make-up.
    The mirror’s reflection
    starts divine introspection
    as I face the rejection
    of myself.
    And I realize
    love is attracted to itself
    and once I embrace it,
    it will find me.

    yo

    you have to love you first
    if you don't love you how you gonna love somebody else

    so just be patient
    time and experience = wisdom

    so take time to love
    and on that other

    this is one big game out here
    ya know
    and we not even fighting to eat anymore
    just to live in peace in impossible
    somebody has to make is difficult

    so pay attention to the small things
    and enjoy your free time with you
    you know like meditate

    and take the load off your mind
    cause this game is here to stay unfortunately

    DSSNY

    peace
