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
