Who do you want to be?
I feel for you – but not for long
because I came out of my adolescence
able to weather the storm

I change the things I don’t want to get used to
and if I’ve a hundred days, fifty worth writing down
it’s fifty more than you’ll have alone

Let something happen:
something away from your comfort zone
as if it wasn’t hard for me to book a plane
write a letter, move to a new town

But I am here, now: I am noble enough
and I would rather be on my own
