Changing Me

Right now I feel like I'm scared to achieve
Like I'm scared to take a leap
Cause I know the fall could be steep
Take a chance to enhance my life
Cause right now I know it ain't right
I feel it-
Inside of me, I know I'm much better
Just revive me, so I can feel better
And at this point, I wanna believe
That theres something glorious set out for me
But I do not think I'm cut out for it
So I'm thinking that I may just not explore it
Life can be a b*tch, sometimes I wanna whore it
But that ain't me, and I know it, I'm better
Maybe I should just lay down this pen and pencil forever
My mind, hand pen and paper just do not go together
I'll never be the man that I think I can be
With pen in hand, but they say never say never
So slow down
I gotta be honest with me
Is the matter in which I write really me?
Some of it yeah, other frankly, no
So I'll erase half the stuff that I ever wrote
Or burn it
With the real stuff that I have
Cause at this point I've learned that
You want somethin'? You gotta earn it
And in my heart of hearts, I am positive
Me as of late, isn't how I wanna live
So I'm changin' it
And the bar now?
I'm raisin' it
And every good feeling I get now?
I'm savin' it
Cause when it comes to life I dont have much more room
To be hatin' it
I guess this could be the makings of Greatness

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall
Boece or Troilus for to write anew,
Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
