Flawed and Perfect

It seems like I can't please anyone,
Not even myself.
Creating friendships and having no enemies is impossible.
We're all cutting someones throat,
Or stabbing a knife in their back.
One small act of kindness,
Sets off a chain reaction of hatred and distrust.
"Why can't you do this?"
"Why can't you do that?"
Just shut your mouth and take a step back.
Do you not know what I am?
A human, flawed and perfect.
Take it or leave it.
It's as simple as that.
Forget me, if you must.
If everything happens for a reason,
I'd like to know why, right away.
I can't handle the pressure of the unknown.
It's a mystery that is unsolvable;
A puzzle with missing pieces.
Where does this lead me?
A life where I cannot achieve anything-
Anything that I have to put together.
Should I quit or keep going?
If there's no hope left, why should I try?
