Watching myself fall for the same traps as the people who put me here is the ultimate let down.
To think you were meant to be better than them,
To think you were meant to amount to more.
Who gave you this false hope?
The person cast in the role of breaking the cycle
Cracks under the strain from pressure.
What if I don’t want to be great –
What if I just want to be happy?
What if I just want to be?
