“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

Jot it down

Get it out

Shoot your shot

Make them proud

But deep inside

I am crying

In the corner

Im done trying

Keepin up faces

Its amazing

To perceive

A happy soul

Spittin bars 

Taking names

Gaining scars

But as i said

Deep inside

Voices tell me

To stop tryin

Im done writin down

All these thoughts

Hope your proud

Because all this fame

Brought me down.
