I have an idea for a self-help book
It will take the timid office worker
and turn him into a superman—based on my own ideas
researching the most deviant amongst us (Cult Leaders, Serial Killers, and Madmen with Vision).
I am not interested in controlling others
I want to control myself.
The answers are in the library.
Recently, I found hidden knowledge
It’s amazing how many people are seeing, but not perceiving
hearing, but not understanding.
I discovered a secret, and it’s changing me
I am becoming more intelligent
I know what you’re thinking… this guy has delusions of grandeur
that’s okay, because, if we don’t believe in ourselves, who else will?
People can’t prophesy a black swan flying at midnight
I have become that graceful creature
from the ugly duckling
I once was.
It’s hard to accept all the wasted time
like building a house without a foundation.
Now, my strength comes out of nowhere
to lift a car off a grandma
or play notes, without my mind
I was lost.
I am found
I see others, and they don’t see me.
I know, the Power
Though I am silent, I get stronger
like waves, crashing on top of me
the world only knows a winner
so now, it is time to win.
I don’t care about victory
I want to test my philosophy, to see if it is real
against the fighters
who shout me down.
My voice speaks,
without saying anything.
