I walked a solitary road ~ glimpsing fading figures;those whom i wanted ~ Far away from home ~ hiding and crawling into spaces ... An intelligent mind ~ Who longed for beauty ~ What did my knowledge give me? ~ labelled nerd and geek ... Sitting in the corner ~ Wishing the limelight ~ They said I couldn't ~ because I wasn't Mr right ... I couldn't hit and strike ~ But i yearned to learn ~ but time on me was not worthwhile ~ Flattery I had never learned ... She was the beauty queen ~ I the shameful company ~ why would she long for me? ~ a failure so ugly, and without money ... Weak and frail ~ made by the cold days ~ I had to change ~ I had to change ... A little gel on my hair ~ Sleeves rolled a little bit ~ Sharing of a joke or two ~ And I was getting cool ... Heart spoken out ~ in those debates ~ acknowledged as someone ~ who can speak his way ... A smash in the court ~ Astounded all my foes ~ Light in the dark ~ I had made my mark ... A little more effort ~ in the field of beauty ~ pals joked around ~ I could handle a hottie ... As days flew by ~ Word went around ~ That there was me ~ Someone who battled for victory ... But all this time ~ I nurtured my mind ~ the genius inside me ~ I wouldn't let him die ... A fine line to tread ~ Changes which allowed me to gain ~ not to lose what i already had ~ not to lose my faith ... I am not proud ~ To write a metamorphosis ~ from a nobody ~ to a somebody ... But hoped someone just like me ~ may find these words a help ~ there is a hidden spark inside ~ discover yourself ... God made you ~ He had a reason ~ Find it ~ And in your grasp are all the seasons
