New and Improved
By Nate Spears

Legend in my own time
Owner of my own mind
Own my own grind
No error equals no terror
Then I become the knight of darkness

Better prompt than sharp, than never

The less has passed bringing me more
And more
And more

Faith fills this place
Confidence takes over the waste
Overpowered by the will to succeed

Placed in an basket covered with a blanket of nonexistent opportunity
No guidance
No knowledge
Few ways to obtain anything of worth

Then came the worldwide web
Caught in its creation
Bitten by a spider, breathing,
Injected with air
Draining me of all my old ways of thinking

Life less of useless
The boss of my own boss

I introduce you to me

A New
An Improved
The Best

Through finding me again
I’ll never get lost
At best.
