Roads Less Traveled


Never told the truth about what it’s really like

Sold dreams and fantasies about how if I followed the rules given to me

I’d be happy, living large, and serene

But I’m in constant negotiation about who I am and who you want me to be

And I promise, I’ve searched for ways to grow

Without letting your dreams of me burn. I want you to be proud of me

I want you to trust me trust in time while i construct my reality

I’m finding my truth and I’m learning to see

You have to know that I’m learning to accept that the straight path doesn’t exist

Center comes with balance and that sometimes means you have to bleed.

Self-love is KEY
