Just ranking on myself, pay no attention!

I think, therefore I am" doesn't apply to me",
with my f-ed up thoughts, I gotta be crazy
 
There's a difference between being alive
and the perfect perfection for which I strive
 
I've thought and thought till I'm blue in the face,
if life is a sprint to knowledge I'm losing the race
 
An 'honorable mention' award, 'thanks for playing!'
gleaming ribbon awaits me is all that I'm saying
 
 
Like a dullard I missed the opening gun
When everybody else started to run,
 
I admired myself in a fun house mirror;
my deficits as a human couldn't be any clearer 
 
Take the way I bring the poem in to a close,
just what this mess means, God only knows!
