My Best [Poem]

11/07/2009 § Leave a comment

i did my best
to the be the change
that i wanted to see
in this place
but in the words of james ingram
i guess my best wasn’t good enough

i did my best not to complain
but, sometimes i did complain
i did my best to contribute
to the best of my ability, i complied
and i did my best to complete this place
but i guess my best wasn’t good enough
at least not in this place
where i tried to play the game
and be the change
that i wanted to see

i tried to bring new energy to this place
and at the end of the day
i mean, at the end of the decade
the energy in this place started taking over me

i became more complacent
as my self-esteem dropped
as i begin to feel
like i might live here
where i guess my best wasn’t good enough
for the rest of my life

i did my best me
my positive songs
my spiritual songs
my love songs
my story songs
mostly soulful songs
my fun songs
and some freestyles too
but that’s just music
just an expression
which, by the way
may never be good enough
for this place
