Self Obsession

Self Obsession

1 min 470 1 min 470

You call it an obsession, I call it love,

You call it a bird, I call it Dove.


It's a matter of perspective dear,

You could be anything just don't fear.


They call you crazy,

But at least unlike them, you're not hazy.


You love your scars, your flaws,

You're not waiting for anyone for applause.


You don't want anyone to approve,

Coz they will never understand no matter how much you prove.


You only know your story, your battle

Which you've fought when you were just a cattle.


You only know your fears, you only know your strength,

Then why are you making them feel you impotent!?


Were they with you when you were struggling with your emotions,

Trust me dear it's only you who have to fight with your notions.


They don't want to judge you, they are just envy of you,

They are jealous that why they can't love themself the way you do,

Why they can't hold themself the way you do.


They wanted to be like you,

But when they fail, they try to judge you, the only way they can find a flaw in you.


Don't get upset when they name it an obsession because you know it's love,

And deep down they also know it's love.


And if loving yourself is bad,

Then let them call you mad.
