We All Have Good Reasons

I say I have a good reason to keep the money
I say I want to help the world
That I’m doing it for them not me

I say it again and convince myself I’m good
I say it enough that I really believe I would

But it’s not for them
I do it all for me
I want to be great
And set myself free

If I am smarter than the rest
If I make everybody notice
If I have more of all the best
If only I can be more than this

Then I think I can love myself
Then it will be okay
But it won’t.
I won’t
It’s a lie

I can just love myself now
Not anything to prove
I am worthy of love

I deserve the truth
