[Greatness]


I AM DESTINED FOR GREATNESS

I MAY BE AN ANTIHERO

BUT I HAVE NEVER CLAIMED TO BE GOOD

 

I will do anything to get what I want

Beauty and majesty is in manner, blood and money

I may have found myself in the images of others

Because a person’s soul is not determined

By their good deeds

But by the depth of how much they loved

So I will sacrifice the world

For the one I love

 

it just never occurred to me that

she might not love me back

 

And that I would have sacrificed the people

That had sacrificed everything for

The good person they thought I was

A circular method of loss, despair and tragedy

 

Because while I hated what I had done with myself

And the fact that I had neither manner nor blood

The money simply becoming a curse

In spite of it, they loved me anyway,

 

For the hero. Despite all that I had done.

I thought I was better than everyone else

Risking everthing for the one I loved

Wary to the idea that

 

So many people had done such

For me.
