High Achiever Syndrome - Poem by Julianna McLeod (LaPlante)

I've overestimated my capabilities
And now I know I will be let down
By my own ambitions
Why, did I even try
I want to go home and leave this town
I never said never, but still failed
I never gave up
I never succeeded
I thought this was the land of possibilities
But I'm not even good at eating or sleeping
I want to go home
But I cannot
Because I am lost in my high ambitions
I'm naive, in a world false possibilities

Topic(s) of this poem: failure, success, world
