& I stand there

& I stand there.png

& I stand there asking myself for another chance

Asking myself to hold on to myself

To not let go of myself

To love myself

Be there for myself

But here I am doubting myself

Crying myself to sleep

Trying to be a hero

But no one is here to save me

When I fall

I can feel myself catch myself

But sometimes my hands are so bruised from catching others

That I don’t have strength to catch myself

So, I fall, and I fall hard

I fall deep, but I always stand

& I stand there asking myself

To be my own hero

To love myself

Hold on to myself

Do it for myself

By myself

For everyone else

But also, for myself

& I stand there asking myself for another chance

Asking myself to hold on to myself

To not let go of myself

To love myself
