Proud


How can I be proud of myself
If I am not the best
Everyone around me
Have medals dangling from their chest
They won't understand
Because they are always the top man
I wish I could be proud of myself
But I don't think I can
They are better, faster, stronger
I thought I worked harder for longer
Try and try 1000 times over
But there's someone better over my shoulder
I can be proud of myself
Because I'm on the top shelf
I can be proud of myself
Because I don't compare
To anybody else.
