‎"I’m learning how to drown out the constant noise that is such an inseparable part of my life. I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what I want to say to the world: I run my world." - Beyoncé

You cannot do something like Spiderman
You cannot fly or what like Superman
But you run your mouth like dog barking
You talk non-stop like an engine running
You talk about your G6 from afar
But I wonder if it is Batman's car
Because all I see is nothing at all!
Can you even catch me when I fall?
You said you put them down in a second
They are up and you look like an almond
They made you wear those wounds and bruises, right?
It is clear you are nothing for a fight
With yours words, I am growing big with doubts
So, please, stop running seven hundred mouths...

At, first, I thought it was ironic for me to say this to anyone because I'm just the same. But as time goes by, I realized that I was talking to myself. I was proud of nothing and I need to say this poem to myself.

You've made this so funny and upbeat, I was almost laughing. It's really a fun, great read. A couple of times I felt like you were stretching to make the lines uniform (almond?), but the juxtoposition of superhuman and super pompous made this a fun read.

Everyone's crazy. You know why? We all want to be normal. Well, we cant define normal, and, the people you can point at and say, well isn't he/she normal are rare. Doesnt that kind of defeat the pupose of normal? -My Friend

I really appreciated this, there are a few people id like to show this too... myself included when my mouth starts running. well done.

Although parts of it don't make much sense, I can see where you're going with it. I like the concept of telling yourself to stop bragging and talking about things that aren't quite true. Good job!
