    BETTER THAN ME



    You could never be better than me
    I don’t want you to outshine me
    Dress better than me
    Have more talent than me
    I don’t want to hear about your money if you make more than me

    I can’t see your inner beauty
    Because of my own insecurities
    I want to use you like the others,
    But protect my daughter’s worth

    I don’t want you to gain too much weight
    I can only handle half a lady
    Oh and not too much class
    I want to be man enough to last
    And don’t go too far in school
    I don’t even have my GED

    So you see,
    You can never be better than me
    Because you were born beautiful and I’m still working on it
    You inner strength outweighs my masculinity
    Your smile takes the attention away from me
    You’re just too dam good for me

    But, I’ll never tell you this,
    Because you can never be better than me!

    Some folks put the letter "I" in the word insecure. They would be better off alone til they can get their own selves together. Well put.
