    God given talent placed on a platter
    Something thats treasured like a glass trophy shall soon shatter
    Patience is a virtue, my composure has kept me on this ladder
    The more prominent you become, the more news scatters

    In this race the longer you wait, the longer the path becomes
    The 1st is marked bad, the middle is great. nobody bothers to mention the last one
    They hate you while you rise, love you when you make it, then glorify you when you're done
    They dont understand, you can lose, you can win, its okay to have fun

    They point, blame, criticize- they want to fit your shoes
    They walk your footprints, erase your tracks to get rid of the clues
    And then you begin to fall into the trap and start to believe you lose
    Some people are on your side, some aren't, some can't choose

    So you begin to lose faith, you begin to not care
    Then once you quit, they beg, they cry, they want you there
    To use you, to copy you, to patronize you- it becomes a nightmare
    And you fight, pull, you even push, but eventually do what others not dare...
    walk away.
