It took me awhile to accept that I didn’t need your acceptance to be happy.
Your praise was nice but,I knew my worth way before you came along.
You see I had to learn the hard way to find out who I was meant to be.
I didn’t listen to my gut and ended down on my butt and luck.
The world seemed cold and dark and just plain lonely.
But, one day I was helped up and from that day on my worth has shined through.
So I hope you know now your acceptance is like going back to being a fool.
And well I don’t plan on going back to being a fool ever again.
