You tell yourself, be on your guard
It's a new place, nobody knows you
If thinking everyone is against you is what it takes to succeed, do it.
In your defense, it was way too difficult.
Speech is like a pretty snake.
It's beautiful, flowy, and distracts you, but in the end, it's probably full of poison.
So, you start over again.
You keep these experiences in mind,
Like a machine learning algorithm – Observe, Learn, Adapt.
Always remember, be on your guard.
It's when you let your guard down that it hurts the most.
If keeping people at a distance is what it takes, do it.
Just as it says on the carton - misjudged a situation, learnt from it, moving on
