― Ralph Waldo Emerson


I fight this constant battle inside me
Between the good and the bad
With people asking how I am
Never do I say that honestly
The bad is winning, its already won
Instead I live a useless struggle
Fighting for each bit of good
Only to give it away
To those who need it more
And with every breath I watch
As my progress is squandered
by the demons of my past.

I feel that since I am a lost cause any good I can make in this world should go to others...

Completely relatable...it's difficult to overcome all the badness that surrounds us, but if your strong enough to handle that, you're strong enough for anything. Great job :)

Everyone deserves to be loved, even if they can't find it in them to love themselves or anyone else for that matter.

I understand this exactly, sometimes bad things just make you feel so good and it's hard...
