I’m a bullet proof vest

When you challenge me it’s not a test

I’m the new meaning of success

As I progress and impress


The girl I like

And speak through the mic

And strike to a force

Impenetrable but


Like a principle but


She just pushes me away

From her heart

As I start

And be smart


As I play her game

And try to claim

Her blue flame

With no shame

Nor aim


But a stain on the white shirt

As I flirt on this earth and blurt

The words that come out unsaid or unalert

And then she says without saying you’re not worth

This secure mind that is so kind and you can’t

Impress this design that is define from the outside

But at least you tried with pride that dried in the dim
