One step forward, ten self-doubts back.
Secret paths to one genuine moment.
Who changes the rules? Who keeps the gate?
Let me try to put it in a witty way...
How high am I up the food chain?
Who gets to yank my collar and who's my "bitch", you say?
Give five points for education, take ten for "insanity".
Teach me how to interact so I can prove my lovability.
Tell me my worth.
How do I stack up against your lack of an idea on how to live your life?
I don't wanna be your protector, your funny mirror, educator, benefactor, guilty pleasure.
I'm not gonna be your inspiration, your rock to lean on, your stepping stone, your trial-and-error!
