breaking away was the hardest thing I ever did
that week was the most tumultuous of my life
I looked the same, acted the same
but a battle was raging in my mind.
to disturb the status quo
which wasn’t bad, but wasn’t good
but this isn’t about you, it’s about me
it turned out to be the right thing to do
stuck in tradition, the norm
I accepted whatever came to me
always settled for halfway there
didn’t realize I deserved to be happy
it’s like seeing stars at night for the first time
I was not truly living.
