You would have found me even if I didn’t exist.
Don’t cry, unfurl your fists like a pacifist.
That strength I gave you was yours to begin with,
the answer is yours I’m just the stick.
The only thing to choose is you,
the only person to be is you.
Why would you trust you to anyone but you?
I know you’re lost,
it’s written in your delicate eyes
and the membrane of your heart and the crack in your smiles.
If you’re ever told that someone holds the secret making you alive,
know that nothing replaces the genius in your skin you call ‘mine’.
I don’t exist, I’m just an idea.
Something you’ve projected from your fear
from a person into whatever you see, I
have always been what you need me to be.
