I realized I was glassy-eyed
Claiming my life was a surprise
To these times when they capitalize
Off the lies and the truth-tellers
When I self-actualized
I was no longer pacified
By people's opinions
And I strived
To be someone who was winning.
I can picture myself grinning
And pinning my Master's on the wall.
If disasters ever call
I'll answer that phone unbreakable
My morale is strong and mistakeable
For sterling silver rings
I spent my whole life keeping my mouth shut
Now they hate me because I let my mouth strut
Flaunting the truth and showing proof
That you don't have to conform to be accepted.
And when you die, leaving the world and your lessons
To start a firestorm of intelligence.
