Get off your high horse

I am multi talented but people do not believe me
I once tried three different arts and posted it on social media
Some said “You should go in a creative field, leave academia.”
How easy is it was for me to be labeled multi talented, see?

Few years ago, I was told I couldn’t do anything
Suddenly you post on social media and you’re the coolest thing
Come outside and meet me
You’ll realize there is nothing I do differently

I did not see myself as someone who could do many things
But few said otherwise and then it hit me
It’s not about only me, there are multiple people who can do multiple things

Get off your high horse and see the reality
You’re not the only one who is talented
Some can draw, some can do music and some can write
And then you have millions of people who can do all of them combined

Stop being a snowflake
You’re like everyone else, mate
It doesn’t make you special
Just having the raw ability won’t make you a legend

Got to go through pain and agony
Along the way, don’t expect any sympathy
This is your life and in your own hands
If you mess it up, neither will anyone care nor will they understand

You keep telling yourself that you’re the best
Have a special mind that no one ever had
There have been people who were better than you
You want it to be false, but it is true

Everybody wants to be famous and be artistic
It’s not always fun to be the target of critics
When they try to pull you down
They want to be the ones who want to boss you around

Everyone is a slave to something
There’s no escaping it
You want to think you are free
But you’re just one of the many fish in the sea

It’s easy to manipulate people and show what side you want to show
They’ll only notice what you want them to know
You are not better than everyone else
Life is complicated and the circumstances are too complex
Sit back, and enjoy the ride
There’s no place to run, no place to hide
