For Myself

i have this really bad habit.

i have this really bad habit. i'm kind of like a crazed rabbit,

i have this really bad habit. i'm kind of like a crazed rabbit, hopping between passions

i have this really bad habit. i'm kind of like a crazed rabbit, hopping between passions and desperately seeking ardency.

i have this really bad habit.

i have this really bad habit. i hold myself back,

i have this really bad habit. i hold myself back, fear letting myself be seen

i have this really bad habit. i hold myself back, fear letting myself be seen because i'll never be able to heal

i have this really bad habit. i hold myself back, fear letting myself be seen because i'll never be able to heal from the inevitable sting that comes from being

i have this really bad habit. i hold myself back, fear letting myself be seen because i'll never be able to heal from the inevitable sting that comes from being kicked in the teeth

i have this really bad habit. i hold myself back, fear letting myself be seen because i'll never be able to heal from the inevitable sting that comes from being kicked in the teeth by reality.

i have this really bad habit.

when i reach out,

when i reach out, heart blinded by wide-eyed sincerity

when i reach out, heart blinded by wide-eyed sincerity and

when i reach out, heart blinded by wide-eyed sincerity and hands open to receive any grief,

'no, thank you' 'i can't ruin you'

'no, thank you' 'i can't ruin you' 'this will break you'

'no, thank you' 'i can't ruin you' 'this will break you' 'you couldn't possibly understand'

I had these really bad habits.

I had these really bad habits. But,

I had these really bad habits. But, I think,

I had these really bad habits. But, I think, I finally understand.

I may carry my heart on my sleeve,

I may carry my heart on my sleeve, Pursue big dreams that may seem too demanding,

I may carry my heart on my sleeve, Pursue big dreams that may seem too demanding, Lead with little experience,

I may carry my heart on my sleeve, Pursue big dreams that may seem too demanding, Lead with little experience, But I am doing everything to stay true to me.

A version of me that

A version of me that you may not appreciate

A version of me that you may not appreciate But that's okay,

Because this is for myself.
