The Purpose of You
You're the one who knows you.
You're the one who believes in you.
You're not put on this earth for anyone to like you.
You know yourself better than anyone about you.
You don't need to prove to others about you.
You don't need to convince others about you.
You should let them know they're not better than you.
You should tell whoever
Don't worry about what's concerning me,
You worry about you.
