Why do you think
my future is so bright?

You don't know
anymore than
the rest of us
what the future holds!

What you see
is not always
what you get!

You don't see
us when we
are ourselves.

You don't see
the bright eyed girl
who cries herself to sleep!

You don't see
the obvious failure
go work a job
all night
to help his family!

You don't see
the people
who fade into the background
of your minds.

But who is to say
that they will not be
the best among us!?
