Stop leaning on everything

Gonna get yourself killed
Resting the weight of your trust
On inanimate energy at will

Bear the burden of being alone
Alongside everyone else
Upright, child

You’re not going to be
A barista forever
You know you’re destined
For something greater
It’s just a matter
Of dreams between days

May not be fame
May not be fortune
May not be exactly as
Your bleeding heart expects
But you’ll be fine

Stand tall
A 12oz coffee is still a small

There is no such thing as a free laugh
That’s no way to ready yourself to attack
Stop leaning on everything, child
The future’s brutal, at best

Gonna take a lot more than caffeine
To survive this thing called breathing

You’re more than a machine
You’re 100% human being
