The Little Man

Thus says the little man in the land where every on come and go,
'i have motioned many events, and seeing by many,
introverted and extroverted by different happenings and experiences,
knocked down and raised up.
Then i consider this within myself and ask myself this questions...
am i really where am meant to be?
is my facial appearance suggestive?
am i supposed to be changed by the environment or the environment to be changed by me?
i know what am really in for, for a runner is never crowned unless he beats the time and competes according to the rule and regulations of the game'.
its plane clear that we have to break our own record before we can break the world record.
