I am rewriting my story starting right here
a story that puts a stop to avoiding pain and fear
I want to change how my life always seems to turn out
I no longer care for people's comments or their doubt
Cuz what I believe in now is myself
I don't need anything to lean on or hold me up
Just a few good friends to make me laugh
who help me dust off the dirt
and get through the worst
they can inspire my art
and strengthen my heart, just like this ?
I'm not saying I am going to change all of my ways...
I am just going to look at them with a new gaze
so don't think I'm going soft
cuz I still like to put up a fight
I just want more out of my life
so I am going to start with this story that I write
A story like this... nothing more nothing less
just all my dreams wound up into words and thoughts
spread out and untangled from my knots
I want a life filled and overflowing into empty cups
filled with joy, laughter, and love
I want to explore a city and then hike through a woods another day
I want life to be crazy, eccentric, and sporadic
just like me in most ways
I want to help other people achieve goals and shine
Sometimes that desire seems more important than any goals of mine
I want to be somewhere where summer is summer
and fun is fun
where I can live under a glowing sun
where people can hold each other in their arms
with friends or lovers, watching clouds or stars
I want to become the truest form of me
as unique as every bird or fish in the sea
I have made some mistakes in my past
but none that I regret..
In the end only God can judge
What is and what was
I just want this and so much more, more than the less
for the worst but hopefully for the best
I want more then a far off "someday" can give
Oh I just want to live!
and take life day by day
So that's why I am rewriting my story today.
