    Perfecting Profound Prose so I may Possibly

    Prowl back into your Peripheral Perception.

    Knowing it will just take one look

    For you to be downright hook

    For I am that which you seek

    If only you would take a peek

    But instead you wonder in circles

    Trying to fit a round peg into a square

    Nothing will ever fill the void that is labeled "ME"

    Everything else is just a mere inadequate substitute

    Why are you settling for all of those generic brands

    When you could have the geniune authentic original

    Noone's ever gonna truly support you the way that I do

    For they've only seen you in your present state of pefection

    But I was there in your yesterdays seeing beyond your imperfections

    When you were yet a mere lump of coal, a flawed diamond in the rough

    But when you begun to taste the satisfyingly sweet throes of success

    You forgot all about upon who's back you rested to achieve your goals

    The grass on the other side started to look greener then the home field

    But I want you to know that nothing is tuly ever how it appears from afar

    So go ahead and test the futile waters of the others gardens over yonder

    Knowing for now I'll be Perfecting Profound Prose so I may Posssibly

    Prowl back into your Peripheral Perception.

    HA!....It is said that when you "study long, you study wrong."

    .....and...."If you don't handle ya business, your business will handle you."


    So, for me, this piece spoke to both.

    And my favorite part was the last line:


    HA!....but it aint GUARANTEED! :nono:


    I loved the WHOLE, though! :toast:
