I’ve erased so many captions at this point.
I’ll just keep this one here.
I realize as a Lion I have nothing to fear.
But, ‘aneath my mane my words still choke up,
I feel I don’t say the right stuff.
I make jokes about death
& act like I’m tough.
I put on a show,
more like a bluff.
These feelings I feel,
woah, this shit real.
I know I’m moody but on cloud9 I reside,
I feel extra,
ugh, I want to hide.
Hide from these feelings?
Hide from myself?
Pretend I’m an asshole & act like somebody else?
Shit! I’ll be me.
Shit! I’ll be free.
Shit! WTF, be better than currently.
Please just remember,
ain’t nothing wrong with me.
If you cut me I bleed,
I see what I see,
promise I’ll say what I mean.
I was just afraid to be...
strong or assertive,
loud & confused.
I guess it’s serious, but I think I’m behind on my dues.
So lemme pay up,
here it is,
I won’t hide myself like I did as a kid.
So, yeah, there it is.
I’m not good with expression,
but I guess these are all the things you’ve been pressing...
My lips say the words but it’s whispered at night,
I guess here I am stepping in to the light.
I acknowledge my past, scales dropped from my sight.
This is not the same game that I’ve played in my life,
this is harder because I have to change,
I won’t keep myself in my head all my days.
