Delusion of Granduer

That person is thinking about me
They probably think I'm a Movie Star
I get that a lot
Is their Heart pumping fast?
Perhaps it's skipped a beat
If I said hello it would really make their day
I have always had a strange power over people
It must be the way I carry myself
Some people are just born this way
Natural leaders
I know they will be talking about me
Wondering about my life
The people I have met
The places I have been
It's like they have magically seen my future 
It is only a matter of time
They will not soon forget this day
Should I tell them my name?
No, why should I spoil the surprise
This moment will stay in their minds eye
They will tell their children of this day
Of course I will not think of them again
I will walk in new rooms and eyes will turn my direction
They will not be dissapointed
I will let them taste my dreams
They will live their dreams through me
They will want to be me
It is just a matter of time
The whole world will one day chant my name
I look forward to that day
My gift will be their gift
It's just a matter of time


I grew up expecting great things from my Father and instead of doing 
them he lived in his perpetual fantasy World.

    Quite the unique perspective and how you approached it. Because of my summertime job (which is kind hard to go into detail over a comment) I get recognized in my town quite a bit... it's flattering and makes me feel special, but at the same times puts pressure on me to live in THEIR image of me... but I really gotta ask myself... who do I wanna be? How much time is wasted thinking about what others expect of you when you could have been finding yourself in that time? This poem IS grandeur...

    We have to be careful not to give ourselves to much credit. What ever gifts we possess come from God so what can any of us really take credit for?

    I am quite sure I would not want everyone looking at me and talking about me.

    You'd be surprised how much I understand growing up around people who live in fantasy worlds haha. I learned soon enough not to rely on any plans or promises of great things until I saw them with my own eyes! Great write, Rick
