looking back

sitting here thinking about things from the past

people saying id never amount to anything

girls saying they wouldnt be me with

because im nothing

and here i am now

achieving things youd never believe

and here i am now,

wondering if you could still see me now

Nobody can stop you from your goals.
You may feel set back from things that come.
But in the end,
It’s a battle for you to overcome.
And in the end,
It’s going to be just you celebrating
Who you’ve become.

its crazy to sit and think

think about who i was

to who i am now

remembering the sadnesses

i thought i carried

or rather the sadness’s that i thought consumed me

and here i am

free from the chains ive casted upon myself

free from the prison i thought i was in

a prison that was never there to even begin with

heart finally filled

its me

im back to writing on this page of mine

id write about things that wouldnt make me fine

but now im here writing about things that arent about the past time

im done with being in the limelight

picked myself up from this internal and emotional fight

finally standing somewhere that i could see the light

living my life feeling as if everything’s truly going to be alright

me versus life

its all a part of life

our interactions and reactions play a part of who we are now

the good and the foul

they all pile up to make us who we are

life never plays fair

but theres a good to every bad

this is who we are from the life that we had

Just for you

I’m so in love with you.

Seeing me do the things I’d never do.

And it’s all just for you.

Being a better self of myself.

Thinking and doing things I normally wouldn’t do.

And it’s all just for you.
