Going Places

I may not be the smartest.
There are always going to be times when I do not achieve what I feel I am capable of.
I know who I am,
I understand the harsh realities of my limitations
And choose to soar above the bricks that want to weigh me down

One thing is certain
I am going places

I may not be the wisest
There is no perfection in my words or actions.
But when I see fit
I can do the right and moral thing.
I am also not the most articulate
Tensing whenever I feel I am supposed to say the right thing.

I may not be the id
I am going places.

I like the idea of not being perfect but being good enough, ya know? Very well written, I give this an A+ :)

Even though I do not usually partake in this kind of straightfoward writing style, I like it here. very simple, honest, and real. Two nitpicky things:  1. in the "I can do the right and moral thing" you only need one of those adjecives- it sounds repetitive. Personally, I would choose moral since "doing the right thing" is kind of a cliche. 2.In the second to last line, what is "the id?" I am a little confused there. Overall, nice job
