The Next Level....
I want to live my life on the next level,
To take it to the very top.
I want to bend and almost break the rules,
Just for the thrill of it.
I want to sing another song,
Forgetting about those lonesome blues.
I want to maximize my potential,
Underutilized for far too long.
I want to see and feel life,
Rather than wait longingly for it to visit me.
I want to entertain those unknown pleasures,
Which were always for someone else.
I want what I never knew existed,
Because, now I have met myself.
