Empty Motivation


“You’re so talented, you have so much life to live”
More like more time to make mistakes I’ll have to beg you to forgive
Used to dream big but then reality hit and it all stopped
Writing new poems to beat stats I’ve already topped
Measuring myself up against myself
I’m still the guy that needs reassurance and help
I’m still the guy that had feelings for you
Drunk texts only so we know everything said is true
Telling me stuff like I’ll understand everything one day
Like I really wanna know why you never felt the same way
Influenced by the idea of image and perception
Money over everything but for you I’ll make an exception
A product of my hood and society
Forever trying to beat odds made specifically for me
