A Need To Be The Best

There’s talent all around

Intelligence in every mind

Every person is unique

Intimidating my confidence down


How could I have thought I was good,

When there are so many others here?

Who was I to think

Thats id be the one to fear


A pebble amongst the diamonds

A weak link on the chain

A prey to the predators

Waiting to be devoured away


What’s with the feeling of inadequacy

While watching them strive high

When will I gain my wings,

And finally gain to the courage to fly?
