Perception

Maybe I’m arrogant

But I care a lot for people

Maybe I’m too harsh

But I like to help others

Maybe I’m too bold

But I can be scared

Maybe I’m too cold

But I’m compassionate

Maybe I come across as strange

But I don’t care

Maybe it looks like I’m giving up

But I’m getting stronger

Maybe it seems like I’m not expressing my feelings

But I’m processing

Maybe I come across as too slow

But I’m thinking

Maybe I come across as unambitious

But I’m working on the next step

Maybe it looks like I’m working too hard

The truth is, I’m not doing much

Maybe I come across mean

But I care a lot

Maybe I come across too competitive but it motivates me

Maybe sometimes it seems that I value material things too much

But I come from nothing

And am ready to return to that nothing.
