So out of place, my mind stuck in space,
Sit in cold plastic chairs ‘til I’m blue in the face
Blank faces spit monotone panoplies of knowledge
Never would have thought I would be sitting in college
Successful, non-neglectful, doing my best
Near to the top, above all the rest.
So why do I feel like I shouldn’t be here?
Like my intellect passed every open, learning ear
Delusions of grandeur, it may be the case
But I really do think that I have won the race.
Have a mindset that says I don’t work for nobody
The artistry, garnered in silver and gold
A blessing made apparent, at thirteen, I’d mold
Turn in papers superior to my peers; inferiors
I don’t mean to brag, but my literacy, lyricism
Makes up for my many mistakes, I am inferior.
I’m not done yet, far from it, I’ve got things to prove
Show my family and friends, show the world my big moves
Realistically though, I’ve been thinking it so
That I’ve got to start little, introduce myself slow.
Full force you can’t handle, neither I nor the world
But understand that after much practice, I’ll pearl
Make advances like earl
Watch my black tea just swirl
Plotting and planning to better myself
Because all that I want is to better the World.
I am inferior… but my goals are much clearer
Prepare and behold, for my success is nearer.
