I am unimportant 
no one can ever tell me that 
i am important just so 
I will stay strong 
it’s true that 
it’ll never work and yet 
i’m an idiot for trying it. 
huh, maybe 
i was determined 
too much 
I wanted more 
and it didn’t work so 
I feel like plain old me 
cruel comments. 
without 
important words. 
They always give me the sense of 
That i’m who i know I am 
Don’t just tell me what i want to hear
