I've never been one to express myself so directly, more with imagery and symbolism
Obscuring my faults behind a veil of metaphors and euphemisms
But just for one moment, I want to be open and honest
If we can't express ourselves directly and be prepared to expect negativity, then we'll surely crumble under the weight of our insecurities
To search yourself and come face to face with your demons is terrifying
But if we can't face them, then how do we grow?
How do we recover, or know when we're wrong?
And yes, it's okay to be wrong
And I have been wrong, and I am wrong, and I am wrong!
And this is me, and in all honesty I'm not doing so well right now, but at least I'm finding the courage to face myself
Self deprecating? Maybe
Self absorbed? Maybe
I'm so sorry for all the pain and heartache that I've caused you
I just want you to be happy in life
I'll come and watch from afar, and admire you and every bit of joy and success that comes your way
I know that this is for the best, but it's been the most difficult choice of my life
I did this for you, and knowing full well the consequences
This is me and my acceptance, all I ask is that you remember me as I walk away
