I don't feel the need to be anyone but me

a crisp autumn day
so full of promise
but it seems I'm a little too
glass half-empty today
to fully appreciate it
those old feelings have returned
climbed halfway up
the mountain of life
but it feels like a world away
to reach the top
haven't worked hard enough
and it's starting to show
in what little I've got
yet I don't feel the need
for ambition or to inspire
I can't feel the fire
or the burning desire
choose to bask in the glow
of my drama-free life
get to enjoy the sun
before it falls from the sky
it is I
who I'm living this life for
no need to apologize
for what it is I'm not doing
therefore no need
to feel sorry for myself
I don't feel the need
to be anyone but me
