We walked down a sunny road
With spring throughout the air
But my mind was in darker thoughts.
I looked over at him; talented, smart and cool
His aura overwhelming mine.
How can he be so amazing?
I explained to him what was in my head.
“Everyone I meet is more talented than me;
Actors, musicians, writers, poets,
For their next work is the world waiting.
Everyone I meet is cooler than me;
Talkative, friendly, easy-going,
With splendid tricks up their sleeve.
Everyone I know is smarter than me;
Scientists, math whizzes, inventors,
They are overflowing with creativity.
What could have possibly gone wrong with me?
Talent-less, foolish, idiot;
Why is everyone so far ahead of me?”
He then turned and said to me,
“Are they truly all that cool, so smart, very talented?
I will tell you what I truly believe.
All these things you mentioned,
Are only relative to whom is seeing.
If only you could see what I see in you,
Then you would finally believe.”
