In Your Shadow

You out-do me when I do my best

You’ve always been

Smarter

Quicker

Thinner

Louder

 

You takeover when someone’s impressed

And they see your

Greater

Brighter

Wiser

Stronger

 

I lose my glow

My spotlight

You steal my show

But whatever

It’s alright

 

I guess that is just how it goes

I was born to be second best

To hide in other’s shadows

Yes, I was born beneath the rest

 

But whatever

It’s alright

You’ll have to pardon the negativity of this. I was having a moment of sorts and I needed to get this out of my system.
