Bask in your glory
Porcelain_Lo

So stand for yourself
 1
and take pride
 2
in your ability to hide
 3
every thought
 4
that creeps into your mind
 5
Pat your own back
 6
and let the cards stack
 7
oh god your so perfect
 8
to you.
 9
 
 
Look down on the city
 10
so big
 11
and so shitty
 12
It's not ready for you
 13
your just too damn pretty
 14
Let out all your lies
 15
that you've memorized
 16
oh god your so brilliant
 17
to you
 18
 
 
Smile in the mirror
 19
For every waterless tear
 20
that you've let yourself lose
 21
In the midst of no fear
 22
Just hold yourself tight
 23
in the middle of the night
 24
oh god your so lovely
 25
to you.
 26
 
 
And is it a lie?
 27
or do you really not see
 28
that everything you want
 29
is not who you need to be?
 30
So enjoy the pedestal
 31
you've claimed in your name
 32
oh god your so mighty
 33
to you.
