What You Live For

What you want will never be what you get
What you receive will never be worth the debt
What you love will never be worth the pain
What you do will never be worth the strain
What you cry for will never be worth the tears
What you work for will never be worth the years
What you strive to be you will never become
What you compete for will never be worth the run.
What you live for no one will care about
It’s what you die for that will make you stand out.

This is amazing! I love your work in genreal but this stood out to me. The ending,"It’s what you die for that will make you stand out." Is Great. Whenever i end a poem it never flows with the rest of it however you did an amazing job at this. Thanks for commenting on my work btw. Your bio reminds me of my friend Cassie she is obsessed with manga and loves black :)
