at some point,
you have to take responsibility
for your own self-worth

𓆙

if you leave such a fragile thing
in the hands of others
you'll be left with half a soul.
trust me, you want at least one whole soul.

I'm supposed to be alone

So I don't have to worry about being good enough for anyone

So I don't have to worry about being taken care of

and vice versa.

This is the real world
don't act like yourself
You have to be a certain person
just to fit in with them.

There's no time to waste
Your identity must be contrived
Change now or you'll be replaced
You must be ready when they arrive.

If one flaw is spotted uncovered
you'll quickly be disavowed.
If you have trouble concealing,
at the small price of your soul,
I'll be grateful to show you how.

I am the shepherd.
The Social Shepherd.
I'll make all your dreams come true.

Just follow my lead,
you'll see there is no need,
to continue being that 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 called "you."

You're not the first guy to kiss me without loving me . . .

. . . each time my soul weakens.

I'm not the girl people fall in love with

I'm the one they trick themselves into loving
while they get over the girl they loved too late.

if you don't like me
don't act like you do
just leave me alone

i'm not a fuel stop
along "rebound" hwy
leave me alone

i can't help you that way
i love way too hard
leave me alone

if you're not in love
spare my blissful ignorance
leave me alone
