In the long shadow

He was there first
with a job well done
casting shadows
of expectation on me

Everyone thinks
I will do the same
It’s too much
It’s not me

Can’t you see,
I can do as well
in my own way
don’t measure me

I have my own
victories and success
they’re real, and mine
I’m not him, I’m me
