Who do you think you are?

Honestly,

who do you think you are?

They’re laughing at you

behind their phones.


Stay in your lane,

Do what you’re told.

But life is short

So why not hit *post*?


Yeah, I’m a try-hard

And they might be laughing

But I want to go places

And I can’t without trying.


I would much rather

fail fantastically,

reaching for something,

Than stay in my lane,

Ever-yearning silently.


Embracing your cringe

Might become the new trend

And I’m so on board

Because I’m so fucking bored

with this concept of cool,

with this pretty façade.


They can laugh and cringe

To their heart’s content

That’s fine by me

I’ll give chase to my dreams.
