On Your Own

I would have.

I would have gotten away with it.

I would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for those meddling adults.

You know, the ones who hold you accountable.

I would have gotten away with not working out.

With eating like shit.

With not writing every day.

But I didn't get away with it.

I asked those meddling adults to meddle.

To meddle by pushing me.

Pushing me towards what I said.

What I declared.

The stand I took.

By pushing the pedal to the metal.

To accelerate towards support.

Support I asked for.

Ask those you love to meddle.

So you don't get away with it.

Because you'll definitely get away with it.

On your own.
