The body of Worthless

Worthless is the world where nothing matters, yet every choice you make puts your future on edge.
Worthless is the world where you can be carefree, yet you have so many worries that you cant feel anything.
Worthless is the world where no one's feelings matter, yet everything you feel makes you cry to sleep at night rather than enjoy a lullaby. 
Worthless is the world where trust & empathy dont exist, yet it's all you wish for on your shooting stars.
Worthless is the equator that we all end up crossing between perserverance & giving up.
Perhaps Worthless is me.
I broke the barrier. 
I am trapped in the body of Worthless
And the only people that can help me escape
Are the people that pushed me there.
Until then i'll keep climbing this rope that my life rests on,
Hoping i'll never reach the top
Because the top means the end.
Hoping it will stretch on for infinity.
Hoping to be a flower:
Make it through the storm
And still blossom in the rays of the light.
Hoping I will eventually escape
From the body of Worthless.
