You said “You’re an inspiration” I look at you confused,
For the words “She’s a drama queen” are all they ever used.
You said “You have such focus” I wonder what you see,
For they said I lack direction, don’t know what I want to be.
You said “You have such courage” I wasn’t quite sure how,
For they said I live in fear of the person I am now.
You said “You have such drive” I’m not sure what you know,
For they told me I lack purpose and I don’t know where to go.
You said “You’re very wise,” It’s a question I must ask,
For they said I have been foolish in the present and the past.
You said “You’re very brave” I don’t feel it half the time,
For they said I live in fear of the life that I call mine.
You said “You’re going to help” but I believe this is true,
For I think you know me better than all the others do.
