I AM...

THE DEFINTION

OF UNBALANCED ETTIQUETTE,

LOUD WHEN I WANT TO GET,

SHAKING WHEN I SEE MY BREATH

BUT CONFIDENT NEVERTHELESS.

 

I AM...

THE LAST OF THE THE BIG HEARTED PEOPLE.

WHERE A PAT ON THE BACK

IS NOW AN INSULT AND A SLAP

FOR ALL MY DEDICATION,

LOVE AND HARDWORK,

ONLY TO BE OVERWORKED

OVERDEDICATED

BUT STILL GET THAT PAT...

 

I AM...

THE QUIETEST FORM OF DEPRESSION,

IF YOU EVER BEEN THROUGH IT...

I AM STARING AT MY WALL FOR 7 HOURS

BRAID DEAD

IN MY HEAD,

THOSE THOUGHTS AND QUALMS

THAT KEPT ME CALM

ABANDONDED ME WITH MYSELF

AND I HATE IT.

 

I AM... ANGRY

THAT NO ONE TOLD ME

THE SKY'S THE LIMIT

AND I HAD TO FIGURE IT OUT

MYSELF

AND CAME TO THE CONCLUSION

DURING MY CALCULUS CLASS,

THAT THE LIMIT

DOES NOT EXIST,

AS I GO

TOWARDS MY AMBITIONS AND

IT ONLY APPROACHES ZERO,

IF I LISTEN

TO THE OUTSIDERS,

THE NAY SAYERS

INSTEAD OF MY INTUITION.

MY MISSION IS THAT

OF A BIGGER VISION.

TO BE AN INSPIRATION

FOR ALL THOSE IMPRISIONED

WHETHER IN THEIR OWN

MIND OR IN THE CORPORATE SYSTEM,

 

I AM...

AND OLD SOUL

IN A YOUNG BODY.

AT 22,

I NEVER KNEW

I WOULD HAVE LOGGED

THIS MANY MILES

ON MY SPIRIT

WHERE NO ONE CAN HEAR IT

CAUSE THAT VOICE IS WORNED OUT

AND THE ONLY COUGH DROPS

ARE MORE COMPASSION

THAN THE PAIN THE BROKE IT

 

IN THE END,

 

I AM...

A CONFLICTED MIND

WHOSE BEEN THROUGH A LOT

AND WILL NEVER TELL YOU THAT HE

HAS BECAUSE,

PAST THE NUMBERS AND MATERIAL

POSSESSIONS,

HE REALIZED HIS LIFE IS A BLESSING

AND HE THANKS EVERYONE

HE MET IN HIS LIFE

FOR TEACHING HIM LESSONS,

AND THAT IS

THE MOST SINCERE OF

CONFESSIONS.

 

I AM JUSTIN LUBOS.
