I Am Greatness and Power

I am greatness and power

I wonder about how to achieve greatness

I hear a roaring crowd

I see people chanting my name in Radio City Music Hall

I want greatness

I am greatness and power

I pretend to be a baseball player

I feel myself floating in a crowd

I touch trophies

I worry about what happens if I don’t achieve greatness

I cry at the sound of defeat

I am greatness and power

I understand the people’s thoughts

I say the race for fleeting power is worth it

I dream about power in my hands

I try to achieve greatness

I hope to make myself known

I am greatness and power
