I’ll shrink down, until I’m too small to see. I’ll take everything with me so I’m no longer in your way. In the way of a life you need to lead. The one I’ll only make into a mess. It’s okay to allow me to shrink.
I can grow again, and I can grow back stronger.
I just need to hide for a bit. I need the space to be invisible. I need to be small enough to move around all of the powerful things in my way. The things I can’t seem to set aside or forget.
When I’m ready, I’ll grow again.
I’ll stand tall with my shoulders back and you’ll see me again. It’s better this way. If I’m too small to see, then you can’t watch. You won’t have to see how difficult it is. You can be at peace.
Allow me to shrink, but please don’t step on me.
Even when we don’t talk, don’t worry.
I still hear you in all the songs.
They’re constantly playing in my head.
