“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

Everyone assumes that they know you

how is that true when you don't know you

you know your favorite food

colour and season

But that's now what makes you who you are

who do you want to be?

who do you want to see?

why do you want to be?

these are asked and never answered

So we wear our masks and hope to entrance them

so never say you know who I am

when I don't even know where I stand
