Rely on others is a hard thing.
Relying on them binds them to us.
It reminds them you needed them.
It reminds them you can’t do it on your own.
That you needed help.
That you are a failure.
That you can’t do it on your own.
But I am not alone.
I am not a failure.
My path differs from yours.
My path is my own and,
My vow is now to go it alone.
Rely on myself and myself alone.
For never will I feel the pain,
Of your scorn,
Of your judgment
Of your righteous opinions.
I will show you, I can do it.
I will show you I am not a failure.
My path might be different,
but my path is my own.
