Why can't I be myself?

Why must I be better than the rest?

Just be happy with what you've got


Oh, what've I've got?

I must put myself to the test

Because, face it-  I'll never be the best

In fact I'm not doing to well 

I'm doing even worse than a crystal ball could tell


But what's wrong with how you are right now?

You're basically the best at everything you could

You try hard enough


Ah- but the bare minimum is not enough

Maybe I could if I would

Because basically isn't totally either

Really, push yourself, or you'll end up neither!


But I've already pushed myself

I've already tried

I'm sick of all this corny persistance stuff

Honestly I'm all I could be--


--except you're not

Try harder

Be better

Do all you can do excel

Compete with your friends if you must


Never will I ever

You could never make me compete with my friends


Oh, but you already do

You know that you're better than them

You know that you have been better than them

But it won't stay that way,

At least, if you don't try you're hardest, it won't 


But talent could be hard work


Not when there was never talent to begin with

It was all hard work

Built up to look like talent

So tell me

Where did your hard work go?


Where did your confidence go?


Where did your persistence go?


Where did your comfort zone go?


What comfort zone?

You've never had one to begin with

Your comfort zone is an area in which you haven't found yet

You don't know anything

You can't do anything

And this conversation proves it



idk this is the war in me. It's forever going on about various subjects.
