Change Only You Can Make
What is it you are trying to prove?
I’m not sure you even know
Who are you, really?
Maybe you should start there
Before my mind begins to take control
Are you so susceptible
To another person’s weaknesses?
We don’t even know each other
And already you have lost
There is nothing behind your aliases
Where is your disgust?
Why have you not summoned the necessary levels of disdain?
To find yourself
You must first kill me
Kill everything about me
Empty the cup
Break the cup
And walk away
Can you not cleanse your mind?
Can you not build the anger necessary to walk alone?
Change from within must come from without
Without a past
Change for you must come from you
Who you are
What you are
No matter the reflection of your past
And the echo of familiar voices
Until the day you turn around
And see your inspiration in those making the same choices
