I thought
I was okay and happy
Being i n d e p e n d e n t
But
Every time I
Actually have H O P E
Everything 
                        f
                        a
                         l
                         l
                         s
To 
       p
              i
       e
              c
        e
               s
Right in front of me
Before even being put
Into place
I'm always
A second choice
Cared about
Just a little 
                        l
                           e
                               s
                                   s
Always
The shoulder
To cry on
I'm tired
Of never being
On the top of someone's list
How I'm never
Good enough
Even for M Y S E L F
And it hurts
More than I thought it would
There's always
Someone prettier
Better
Skinnier
S t r o n g e r
Than me
But I can
                    E
               S
         I
R
Much higher
Than that
I can keep going
Much farther than them
These eyes have witnessed more
Than theirs ever will
They don't and won't understand
What it means
To have a b r  o k e n  
                                        p
                              a
                  s
    t
And to have nobody
To 
       p
           e
        i
             c
         e
It all b a c k
Together
