Not as strong as the shadow I cast
Easy to spout off important things that last
Pitching suggestions and allegations relentlessly
But those soliloquies don’t inspire me

Not as influential as the wake of success
Trained in the art of war, only pursued the inevitable
Encouraging every soul within my grasp
But that inspiration doesn’t care for me.

Not as thoughtful as gracious people say I am
I’m avoiding regret and karma on the back end
Making a difference in other people’s life
But life is not the same for me

Not as caring as I care to be
Able to ignore desperate people in time of need
Selfishly focused like that doesn’t impact me
But it’s who I am. And that person is me.
