Show them where you’re going
And show them where you’ve been
Show them all the good bits
So they know you live the dream.
Don’t bother them with heartache,
Don’t worry them with tears
Don’t share your wild and crazy dreams,
For god’s sake, hide your fears.
Because nobody wants your poetry
Nobody wants you to be real
Don’t mess up their timeline
By telling them how you feel.
And if you get an urge
To finally be honest,
You know what you have to do,
Just stick a filter on it.
I don’t need to explain this picture to you.
