Frustrations

All I do is never enough

Everything seems like nothing

Anything feels like everything

Nothing I do seems to come out right

Why can’t my hard work satisfy?

When will I get to relax?

Why is everything going this way?

I try to act as if I am not in dismay

Pleasing is what I strive for

If these acts could kill

I would have committed mass genocide

Life speeds up as I slow down

Some days it is all I can do to keep up

I want a break

A chance to relax

I want my life to be a little lax

When will I reach my goal?

What will it take?

Will I get there before I break?

All I do is never enough

At what point will I give up?

I am running as fast as I can

Trying to keep up with the leading clan

Try as I might, I am losing the fight

I see no end in sight

Life is speeding up as I slow down

Frustrating enough it needs a Crown

How to console my anxious whole

When will I reach my goal?

Will I get there before I break?

Will I get there before I wake?

Questions fill the air

But no one is here to hear my despair

I know I am not the only one who feels this way

But everyone is so far away

Emotions are mixed and trite

I do not like to be shown in the light

Pure as my life conveys

Shadows cast over my soul

Shadows cast over my life

I want to turn out all right

Try as I might, I am losing the fight

Frustrations are apparently there

But aren’t they everywhere?

Struggles cause us to weep

Struggles I want to keep

They shape who we are

And who we become to be

Some days it is all we can do to keep up

Some days it is all I can do to stay up

Life speeds up while my body slows down

There is only so much I can take

Will I get there before I break?

All I do is never enough

Everything seems like nothing

Anything feels like everything
