I Did This For Me

I did this for me

Because I'm tired

Of competing for parts

I'm tired of all the fighting

The dramatics

The useless nonsense that tore us all apart

I used to have friends

There's a lot I used to have but

I did this for me

So I didn't have to fight my way

To the front of the class

Because it was my "rightful spot"

Because

I was the senior

The oldest of the group

And I deserved it

But I didn't

I did this for me

Because I don't need to suck up

And put my skank on

Just to make friends in this industry

I wanted to be me

And if you don't like it too bad because

I did this for me

To not be the best in the class

No

I don't strive for that at all

I'm going to be my best

Better than myself

I am my own worst enemy

I want to do this so bad that

I did this for me

Even though I don't have gobs of money

To give away

Just so I can be in the front of every dance

My strengths are chosen and praised

And I don't have to fight anymore because

I did this for me

Because I don't do things for myself anymore

This is the one thing

I'll ever want to do

And I'll learn everything I can, including saying

That I did this for me

And no one else

But me
