    A boundary over which I should not tread
    For the fear of the look of which I dread
    That look of total complete ignorance
    As if ask you why the monkey's dance

    I strive to be the biggest brighest star
    Not realizing how it set you back so far
    Why can we we journey on the same pathway
    Why do we have to go our own seperate way

    Why do you not understand my need for apitude
    It is not so I can have a better than you attitude
    I just want to be the best possible me that I can be
    No matter my achievement I'll always be the same me

    We all want someone who will appreciate our successes, not be threatened by them. Keep striving to be your best, I liked the way you expressed yourself.
