I’m choosing myself,
to step away from the responsibilities
and be selfish.
I’ve done this too many times
too scared to look at freedom
and dove back into the dark cage.
but more duties to fulfill sure will force me to do things
I can only succeed and not fail.
I can’t believe how wrong I was
in the pursuit of my passion.
I offered my soul and entire self and attached it to my dreams
while it grew its own wing and flew away,
the never-ending exhaustion chasing after it,
constant losing battles.
But this time I chose myself
that I’m the dream
that I don’t have to suffer and be in pain
that I am motivated
It was never taken from me, I just refused to choose myself.
