Masharia Monologues - Poem by Masharia kanyari

I am not better than anybody is,
I am simply further up the right direction,
I am not happier than you are
I only exist in another dimension
I am blunt; excuse my mind speech
Although I prefer it to my reflection
My aim lies not in out-doing anybody but myself
I don't seek to be the best
I thirst not for medals
All I need is perfection
To thrive in my time
And live like nobody else
thus it is not entirely about paper dreams
It is more about progression
I love what I am becoming
And who I was;
I admire and respect
One day my soul will apllaud my body
For having stood the adversities
Pursuing an elusive dream
Journeying to this destination
The attainment of perfection.
