"A good friend will bail you out of jail. But a best friend will be sitting right there with you saying 'Dang, we really screwed up this time.'"

Living in the Shadow,
Never stepping in the spotlight.
Can't create enough of my own shine,
Always dwelling in the night.

Others see my success,
I don't know if they see
My flaws.
But I remember all my imperfections,
and the failures they have caused.

Living in the Shadow
of my own expectations.
Someone I can never be.
She is so much more talented,
Always one step ahead of me.
