"I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes. I am out of control and at times, hard to handle, but if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." -Marilyn Monroe


The heart in his chest in brave
Fear
He does not know that name
Danger and adventure
Are
To him a simple game

Though you may cross the stormy sea
Be
Worn and beaten down
He just smiles and laughs and
Says
"Come, now, do not frown!"

His unwearing confidence
May
Seem strange and unnerving
But it's his job to be this way
Always
Bold and most deserving

His domain is boundless
So
To you it will seem
The accomplishments that are his
Are
Only in your wildest dreams

This little piece just popped into my head one day, rhymes and all, and I had the sense to write it down so I would remember it and that's all there is to it. Sorry there's no big lightbulb or deep meaning.
