A man with everything
Always lacks some one
Don’t let ’em fool ya
People who brag about being some one-
Are usually no one
People who think themselves poor
Are actually quite rich
People who think they’ve arrived
Usually have a gazillion miles to go
People who think they shine
Are actually a galore of bore
People who think they’re hot
Are truly not
People who think too much
Do the thinking of the ones who don’t
People who think they are blind,
can actually see..if they so choose to.
People who claim they can’t hear-
Hear more than they let on
People who think themselves puny-
are usually the hidden giants among us.
People who think they’ve nothing to say-
Are the ones you wish would stay
People who think themselves mighty
Should see themselves first as lowly
People who think themselves dull
Are actually great beacons of light,
leading ships into harbor
that have lost all their sight.
People who think themselves wise
Are usually the ones who fall for all their lies
Don’t judge a book by its cover?
Yeah, don’t be too quick to judge a man
Sit still in his presence
Soon you’ll see his true lover.
