Skeptically Optimistic is what I am; it’s a contradiction I know
But I’ve come a long way in order to show marginal growth
See negativity used to greatly flow through my soul
Had me feeling like bad thoughts and I were eloped.
It wasn’t until I learned that my mind is what can determine
Whether my future has despair or hope,
I can be depressed all day or I can get out and achieve my goals
But I realized at the same time that the world is not just sunshine and roses
Causes there are enemies in the background like a shadow posing
So I must tread lightly and be weary of human serpents when I’m coasting
So this means I must be jovially observant, like a friendly convenient store merchant
I must have hope for what’s in store
Between positive and negative I could go in either direction more
But that wouldn’t be who I am at the core.
Skeptically Optimistic, Suspiciously Confident, all oxymoron’s
A contradiction shows my true depiction
Which is a person with a tremendous amount of personality, charisma and conviction.
Giving dollars to various benevolent causes to chip in, but won’t take a seat in a dirty chair
Cause it’s gross to sit in. I don’t know my life’s mission.
But I do know I need relationships with other walking discrepancies, I’m loving, sad, and sometimes I lack empathy, but I don’t need your sympathy, us contradiction’s
Are used to the treatment like cancer victims. I, the contradiction’s, ONLY competition is myself, the ignition.
