I’m trying to change

An attempt to be anyone else

Aware that that’s not actually achievable

I just want to make you proud

Maybe that’s just a childish delusion

And dreams don’t truly come true, do they?

But it’s not just for you

It’s for me too

Hoping it will make me happy

Fantasyzing that I’ve found my calling

And what if I fail?

A fear like I’ve never felt before
