Always One Step Behind

I'm always in last place, never better than anyone.



I'm always in last place, trying so hard , but never really there.
Seems to me that I will always be one step behind, doubting and wishing
That one day- I will be victorious, But there's one problem.....

I'm always One Step Behind.

This okay, I can see what you were trying to do here, with the repetition. Fell a little flat, but that's okay, it's still good! :D keep it up!

I relate to his. I feel the emotion you display. It feels raw and at the same time empowering. It motaivates me to continue to not ve that last person. But aim to be the first. i love it. And you should write more ASAP. Glad to have met you.
