Sane Insanity


Call me crazy,
But at least I’m not lazy.
Don’t get mad at me
Because your vision is hazy.
I’m gonna continue to do me
And just wait till you see
What I’ll be.
You’ll wish you had been in my corner from before,
Sitting there praying for more,
But I’m sorry I worked for this with all of my core.
So no you won’t get some pie
Because you were never my ride or die.
You’re just a person I know who loves to lie.
This has never been yours to take,
So, for my own sanity and sake,
I just can’t let you in and be fake.
