Myself Conquers Self

Selfish self

Shy self

Not wanting to feel

Not wanting to notice

Not wanting to be



Worried about my flyaways

How others viewed me

Letting others ideas of me affect me


Self was not really myself

Self was a selfish concept of me

A vein going insane version of self


But a small transition

A slight change in outlook

Made me realize I wanted to be myself


Not the concept of self

That was put on the shelf

By someone else

Who wanted me to be a way

That wasn't my own way


I found who I was


Took myself back


Claiming me for my own


No longer craving

The numbness that comes along

With being accepted by

The people I didn't want to be


Only the pleasure that comes with

Myself being me
