    cutting through dreams like a subliminal knife, my life spins like a discus
    because of bad decisions I’m submitting to an unhappy heart
    part of the problem is my inability to change quickly
    and making bad choices is a major flaw in me
    mistakes are part of a growing process....
    but I’m almost a giant, so I can chill out I think
    killing off my emotions has helped me not get hurt
    but I fear I killed them AND buried them
    it was a mistake thinking emotionless is the best way to be
    I’m isolating the few people that wanna love me
    above me is a cloud of regret, raining down thoughts of where I could be
    but im not getting wet, just heavy with remorse
    I’m driving without a steering wheel and can't change my course
    swerving in and out of the highways of the world
    crowded with people not concerned with where they go
    or even how they get there. I swear to stop the procrastination
    im gonna improve my decision making with no hesitation
    the mistakes I make from here on, I want to be few and to learn from them
    when I finally get my feet planted firmly I’m discerning things will turn
    assertively denying myself weed, indeed this is the start I need
    everything else will fall into place if I stay focused long enough
    keeping my mind on what’s important will help me stay strong
    when I do feel weak, I wont speak a word about it but fight through the fear.
    my ears hear the silent cries of lives worse off than mine
    I would love to change the world, but I gotta start with my own mind
