Poem By Will Rideout
Give me a piece of paper, a pen, and time and I will write multiple verses.
And watch my haters scream that I have always done it wrong. Worthless.
My ears are too in tuned to 'Success' that now I'm starting to muffle their curses.
If ever there was a competition, even with 'The Third' in my name I have won them all. 'Perfect'
Perfectly establishing my rank in the eyes of all those who still continue to search for me.
And purposely following the plan for success locked tight and my word is key.
Those who doubt keep a red dot on my forehead like someone is recording me.
I guess they couldn’t miss a second of my chapter because there is always something more to read.
So much more to me so I cannot imagine why that everyone says that I am such a bore to read.
They think they can eclipse where I am going but I swear they are just there to orbit me.
Standing high atop all your lies for all the world to see.
A young man who continues to speak of absurdities and dreams of goals that are just too absurd to see.
Has signed the dotted line of his important creed and sown it shut tight inside his heart with a purple seam.
I am that young man who speaks truths universally but ears closed to the truth so really who has heard of me?
Yet I’m going to continue to be everywhere peace resides so there is virtually no hurting me.
Servicing those whose lives aren’t the best but you know in the bottom of your heart that they deserve to be.
Blackened thoughts turned my red sky burgundy. My team carries no white flag, zero forfeiting.
Been pushed down to the ground and the same place from where I stood has made the dirt too clean.
I continue to extrude the pain I experience in my life into this pen as I continue to bleed verbally.
Working myself to move on cause personally ordering my words into order doesn’t really work for me.
But fortunately I can recall back all of the people who have lost themselves to the words too free.
I will never doubt the man that I know I was born to be. Will Rideout wobbling on that horizon line but will never stop climbing vertically.
