Identity: Who are you trying to be?
It’s a difficult thing
Trying fighting and failing for
Your hopes and your dreams
Who are you trying to be? analyzing everything
“Would the world be a better place if there were more of me?”
I’m trying to check them
I’m trying on my own strength to hedge them
I’m uncertain of whether I
deserve a mention, I am struggling with my worth,
“would the world be a better place if there were more of me?”
I know that it’s hard and I know that you’re trying
To contain all of your doubts and figure out who you are right now, but
Keep trying and searching for a place to call home
a place to be known and a people to call your own
the truth is, we’re imperfect.
Trying fighting and failing on our own to be worth it
We build our own kingdoms, put people down to find our purpose
Choose not to be defined by the times
When you were blind to
the person you could become or the people you could hold on to
We, we can get through
We want to live so we can see
a world like we want to see brothers and sisters, mothers
living in loving unity
we, we want to be trying fighting and flying up on eagel’s wings,
who are you trying to be?
we want to live so that the world would bea better place if there were more of you and me
