Turning Into A Believer (?)

31

There’s nothing left to say

they get it now, now they see

the mirage I never wanted to be

sometimes the things you wish for

aren’t what they hoped for

and the things I wanted to be

they already knew I couldn’t

believing in yourself is sweet

but without consciousness is vain

you have to know yourself

and what you possess

before any belief can take root

I didn’t believe in me

because I didn’t know the definition

of “me”

was it the poetry, the cunning

to flip the world’s scorn on its head

or was it the outside

the choice to be led

rather than stand out

I don’t believe in me any more now

than I did a few years ago

but I understand myself better

than any said I could

I guess that makes me a believer

(at least it should?)
