not what's wrong

not what's wrong
or
what do i need to change
but
what am i doing right
or
what do i need to just do more of

and
(of course)
how do i stay on course
where the map's working
&
ditch the anchor of wishing
doing what i do
felt different
in any way

because
i'm just me
and
i always will be

so
maybe i should
make friends
and
pay attention
to what i have
before crying
about
what i thought
i needed
