I Need This

Never again will I miss the opportunity to show you what we're made of. So much time has passed and we've learned so much, I won't let this turn into another bad dream, a thought only in passing. It won't amount to a thing, but this is what we're made for and I won't let myself stand in the way. Nothing will stand in our way. I've doubted the reality that I've always wanted. Now you know I'll have it. Saying well maybe, but probably not. I never thought success would come from this, I dismiss the thought. I'm too afraid of failure. So scared that the only thing that makes me unique would soon destroy me. This is how I stand out, This is how I choose to live. I wish I was given other gifts, but this is what He gave me. My life is on the road and I have to stop looking back. Home will always be there, but I'm headed elsewhere. The voices of those who said I'm better than this, they still ring in my head. It seems they all know something that I don't. At times I feel like I don't need this at all. There are times when I think I need to shift my focus to things more important, but without this I have no purpose. It's almost like a part of me has been hiding for days. Kept away from the world, in an attempt to achieve normality. I may be able to fool you, but I can't fool myself. I need this, this is how I stand out.
