No Need To Be Impressed By Me

No need to be impressed by me

For I’m not that kind of guy

I’ll remain content in the shadows

As the arrogant pass me by

Let them shout & draw attention

I’ll be here, quiet as a mouse

Observing the vagrants of society

Secured in the safety of my house

Not going to run into the streets

Risking all by the Summer’s light

A revolution of rejecting their hate

Osmosis of love is how I plan to fight

I Think You Have The Wrong Notion Of Me

I think you have the wrong notion of me
I could be wrong, but it’s what I believe
I’m neither the saint nor the villain
In which your thoughts are trying to achieve
I’m not nearly as arrogant as I portray
That’s merely the manifestation of a fictional role
I know confidence is sexy & I’m trying my best
But I have doubts regarding the quality of the contents of my soul

There Are Many Fancy Writers

There are many fancy writers
Those who are great, they’ve decided
Elegant illustrations & plunging necklines
But hubris is often one-sided
There are many arrogant writers
Quick with the wit they’ve decried
Moans of pain suited to their fame
Loving with one eye open it’s often implied

I Used To Be Young & Impulsive

I used to be young & impulsive
Idealistic – crying out for those mistreated
Arrogant, impervious to facts or wisdom
Ready for the status quo to be defeated

Now I’m old & impulsive
Stringing words together at will
Focusing on a more personal battle
Time has removed my desire to kill

I continue to pull within my own skin
Struggles no one can understand or see
Alone to fight these cruel thoughts
The sands fall & I merely wish to be free
