I'm in No Mood to be Typical
We all have a path
I have control over my life and my choices...
I set my sites on something bigger,
Something different than yesterday,
I'm not too sure if it will pay off,
But I hold my breath and jump anyway.
No one else can do this for me,
there’s no use in waiting to see.
It’s now or never for me to show this world,
All which is capable within me.
I'm in no mood to be typical;
or to fall and land on my face.
Just as this world can be so cynical,
I can’t afford to lose my place.
My pen meets the paper,
as I write what's inside.
Hold your breath this is when I decide,
I'm in control of my life.
There is no need to please everyone;
If I can not please myself.
I guess they will have to get use to;
Using somebody else.
Some will stick around.
Others will no longer been seen.
I must make sure to remind myself,
Things aren't as black and white as they can sometimes seem.
Even when I make a mistake,
And I begin to stumble and fall;
I know it’s the mistakes that I learn from,
And what gives me my beautiful flaws
Accomplishing perfection has never been my goal.
If it was I know I would never reach it, to begin to be whole
So as everyday comes and everyday ends
I think I am okay, with never quite fitting in
I'm ok with working hard,
And missing shortcuts along the way.
Because every time I choose the scenic route,
I have a clearer perspective at the end of the day.
I don’t see a point in spending my time being cruel,
Or trying to convince others, I am worth the value within my words.
Perhaps I am what others have labeled me to be,
An optimistic, over achiever-who doesn’t live in reality.
It’s alright to be different,
when being different is who you are.
As long as I am true to myself,
I will lead my life by my heart.
I have reached a point where I can say,
No matter if I win or fail;
Or trip and fall from the top.
I will be true to myself, knowing I am the flaws within my art.
