There you go again,
not really knowing.
Think you know me,
think you have me figured out?
You didn’t figure in
I have a few moves you didn’t know about.
I know how to shuffle and maneuver
even when I’m not dancing
without you knowing my every move.
Just when I’m almost boxed
into the pretty package you wrapped me in
I find ways to burst out of my shell,
even out of the hell hole I’m in at times.
With will-power and determination,
I find ways to re-invent myself,
even if it requires a little venting here and there.
Each time, I come out on top
to breathe, exhale, and re-group again.
I bet one day you’ll learn not
to make too many assumptions
and underestimate my ability to grow.
I may grow in spurts from your viewpoint,
and by the time you see growth,
you assume I’m in that place
before you realize differently
I’m in another place.
Keep assuming what you think you know.
The reality is-
you only think you know me.
But, I know who I am.
I am an unstoppable force.
