Like soggy bread pinched between two fingers
An overbearing cologne that continues to linger
A Christmas tree not ornamented the entire way around
My substance is inevitable, you could never water me down
Worse than the flattest Coke on a summer day
Having a long conversation with no words to say
Why build a foundation on the weakest ground?
Or listen to music without a sound?
Why would I lower myself to make you feel higher bound?
My mind is the deepest ocean, it could never be watered down!
I cannot teach you happiness or the confidence you seek
I am not the entity to feed the ego you so desperately need
We possess the same hours in a day to both accomplish and achieve
Trickle your pools into rivers, pour your rivers into the sea
For we each are beyond amazing with ambition and ability
So refrain from putting me down when I proudly come around
As I hold my head to the sky without ever looking down
When you hear me loud, allow me room to be proud
If I speak intelligently, seek more of the knowledge you may need
When I overflow with joy after I consistently succeed
Don’t come around trying to save me
Even when I seem to drown
Live your life without judgement
Stop trying to water me down!
