I Have Come 2 Play
I HAVE COME 2 PLAY
TAKE IT AS NARROW OR BROAD AS YOU LIKE
AND WHEN I COME 2 PLAY
THERE IS NOBODY BETTER ALIKE
WHETHER ITS PLAYING GIRLS, FOOTBALL, OR MUSIC
I AM SIMPLY THE BEST
2ND PLACE TO NONE
HEAD AND HEELS ABOVE THE REST
THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEBODY BETTER?
WELL I DONT BELIEVE IN THAT
BECAUSE IF THATS WHAT I BELIEVED
I WOULDN'T BE WHERE IM AT
SUBCONSCIOUSLY WE ALL CHASE SHADOWS
THE ONE IM TRYING TO CATCH IS MINE
IF I EVER COULD CATCH IT
I WILL BE THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME
2 YOU I MIGHT BE CONCEITED
2 ME I AM TRULY CONVINCED
OUT THE WOMB I SET A GOAL 2 BE THE GREATEST
AND HAVEN'T LOOKED BACK EVER SINCE
LIFE IS A HUMBLING EXPERIENCE
A TRAIT I LEARNED ALONG THE WAY
2 MANY TIMES I EXALTED MYSELF
AND MY WORLD WENT INTO DISARRAY
AS A RESULT I HAVE BECOME STRONGER
U WILL BE RAN OVER IF YOU STAND IN MY WAY
THE EARTH IS MY TURF
AND ITS WHERE I HAVE COME 2 PLAY

I can't really explain the noise I just made but it was like a cross between aw and ah. Brilliant work so cool and bouncy. Star poet has you pegged, you should sell your work as rap its fantastic. If fred wants to be frank then fair enough ;) Wonderful work laddie, I was bobbing my head the whole way through.

I think it's alright to have a lot of self-confidence, which is what you're trying to express. Hey, look, to be frank, if you were indeed trying to be bragadaccio or evince hubris, the poem would have to--logically--have a different ending. Right? It doesn't. So, it's nice as your declaration of personal confidence. It even says life is on the up and up. Good work.

Yes it came off as conceited, but I see the deeper meaning. This person wants to be the best at life and everything they choose to do, good or bad. That takes a lot of drive and discipline and that is the underlying message I took from it. Ali said he was the greatest and he worked hard to prove it. Bruce Lee once studied the psychology of punching to the point where even if you knew he was about to punch you, you still could not stop it. I am impressed with your words and how you use them. I still say you should be a lyricist. I think you could become a razor-tongued lyrical assassin!

Synopsis
This may come off as a arrogant poem but if you dont believe in yourself nobody else will. This is just my ego speaking this is not how i carry myself in life
