Failing - Poem by Benjamin EvansRaspison

All my life I try to find happiness
Try to succeed but fail

You are my counter weight
The one who holds me back from danger
This time it’s for real you are my savvier

As I sit alone
Day in and day out
I think of what the world would be like...
Let’s not go there
I’d rather not

I must be the devil
Or something alike
Trying to do something right for a change
Trying to succeed but always

I want to know what it’s like to be popular
Someone who has loads of friends
But what’s the point in that
I have failed already

I am as good as dead am I not?
Look at me and tell me

I trust my friends
The few friends I have
I can try to be your friend if you let me

People have faith in me
I don’t see why
To me
I’m worthless
Another dot from the sky

Give me no sympathy
It’s my own fault
I am a secluded person
Shut off from the world
The best place for me
On my own

Once again you are my savvier
But you’re too late
