The need to stand out

These times you have to be someone, or have to achieved something. If not, you don't seem to count. Here's trying to convince myself that being at peace with being nothing special is very special indeed.

I'd like to leave my traces
a trail through time and space
something to be remembered by
when I have left this maze

A hunger for achievement
a need for standing out
an urge, a strong desire
for I can't do without

But if the pieces of the puzzle
all would be screaming loud
Look at me. I'm very special!
none of them stands out

It is the quiet piece
of blue and empty sky
that first gets my attention
is first picked up to try

Only a quiet background
will make something stand out
So all in the background chorus
have reason to be proud
