I Thought...


I Thought...

Into the darkness I do wander,

To the deepest reaches of my mind...

Into the negative,

Past all the things I dread,

To the place where I will find,

The path that would lead me to fame,

Now it seems as though,

The path I sought the most,

Will only end in shame,

                   And my tears...


I thought that I was the best,

Better than those who surrounded me,

I know better now,

Though I don't know how,

I figured I would not be tested,

                    All those years...

Something humbled you...and it quite possibly scared you, too. Sounds to me that you are wiser and more mature now. You've c
