Not Even

Not Even
By Michael Muczynski

Not even enough to pass
Words that harass
Not fast enough to play
Not worthy to pray
What can I say?
I don’t meet the standards
I’m a failure
A disgrace
Can’t keep up with the pace
Who could even care?
Or ask how I fare?
All I get are glares
And stares
And snares
I'm nothing
A waste of matter
Everyday feeling flatter
Why am I here?
What can I do?
Is it possible?
Is it true?
Could I mean something to you?

Aww, this is a great poem! I don't know if you're like me, and write from a mixture of what you feel and what you see, but I really hope you don't feel like this! I promise you, and I can promise anybody, that every second of your life someone cares about you. No matter how much you try to deny it.
