Failure - Poem by Derek Germain

I was sent to this earth to fail.
All I do is watch everyone prevail.
I am incomplete, I'll never be whole.
I feel a constant burning within my soul.
Everywhere I turn there is a dead end.
Everywhere I look, I can't seem to find a friend.
I just want to run away,
And there is nothing left to say...
