boo
too many times
have i taken the time
to individually place
dominos
to have someone else
knock them down
before i’ve even finished.

and too many times
have i taken the time
to try to build myself up
for someone to break me down
before i’ve even finished.

they’re scared
of what i could make of myself,
but what they don’t know
is that falling down
and getting back up
just made me stronger.
i have gotten used
to the change in altitudes,
but you still need
an oxygen mask.
(steal the air from my lungs
as i steal the light in your eyes)

be scared.
