I remember living in the skies
Far away from reality
I remember riding on my high horse
Not taking anyone with me
I remember raising my shoulders high
Thinking people lived in mediocrity
But I promise I fell so hard on my face
From such a high place
And picking myself up
Is the hardest thing I've ever done
So I'd rather be right here
Waking up everyday to smell the coffee
Than living in that self made fantasy
My reality is hard, my truth is bitter
But I'd face them instead of feigning bougie activity.
Life = Simplicity.
