None before me

None before me

You say there's none before me
That no matter where life leads
There'll be none before me...
Girl, if there's one before me
Then there's all before me.

Not first among two equals,
First and only first; dictator
Not the master of horse:
I won't hold the stirrups,
Help up the foremost man.

The runner-up prize, the pat
On the back is second place
On the podium; a dull silver.
"Must try harder next time".
Nobody remembers the loser.

I want the glory, the flash,
The wallowing in victory, for
A prize, a triumph like you
Is sweeter by far than gold:
A challenger just won't do.
