Don't Underestimate Me


I got to move on
Don't know how much longer I can take this
I need to make this count

Make no room for doubt
With the one chance I have at life

Ain't got much time
I got to make the first move

Got to get in the groove
In order to find success

I must try my best
So difficult when in constant conflict with myself

Avoiding life
And not wanting to deal with the strife

Yet I have to face the truth
That out there awaits my purpose in life that I must do

Cannot let anyone hold me back
Got to make the move to stay on track

All these years, I let fear get the best of me
All this time I let others choose who I am to be

But it isn't right
I must learn to stand up and fight

Must let myself be heard
Without getting burned

To use the lessons I've learned
In order to rise above all the rest

To try and pass the final test
So you might think im fuckin stupid

And maybe even deluded
But hey

Whether you like it or not
I think I'm perfectly suited

Because I know where I stand
Right by God's right hand

And I don't give a damn what you think
So don't underestimate me

And that my friends
Is what I've concluded.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
