Fuck, I don't need to be to be happy.
I'm not in art to be the best.
I'm there to have fun and to self improve.
I'm not in class for other's benefit.
I'm not there to be the center of attention.
I'm there to learn.
I'm there to gain knowledge.
I'm not in P.E because I like exercise.
I'm not there to be the top athlete.
I'm there because I need to become healthier.
I'm there for me, and no one else.
I'm not a cookie cutter.
I'm not like everyone else.
I'm me, with my my little quirks.
And my strange interests.
I'm not like the others.
And I need to start fucking appreciating myself.
I gotta remember I'm not gonna please everyone.
And that it's ok to say no.
I'm perfect in my own way.
I am pretty, even if the fucking voice says no.
I gotta start looking at the bright side of things.
And I gotta stop being so damn depressing.
I know my social anxiety isn't going away anytime soon.
And neither are my problems at home.
So I gotta grit my teeth and face this hurricane called life.
And smile through it all, even after I find that rainbow.
Life's gonna get better.
All I gotta do is take that first step.
