New self he just wanna be a whole person
Old self found cursing him for soul searching
Other self writing poems on how the world hurt him
Too close to home he gotta hold it down in third person
There is the new self, old self, and the self outside of self, writing it all down.
That’s 3 people, and this part of the rhyme is also being told in the 3rd person.
Simply put, the third person writing the rhyme in 3rd person, is doing so because he is not yet whole- and ashamed of it.
