The Battle in my Mind

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
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.
