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?

The author's comments:
I don't understand why someone things I should change just for them? We're all different; we'll never see eye-to-eye. It's time to realize that.

"As I hide behind these books I read, while scribbling my poetry,
like art could save a wretch like me, with some ideal ideology that no one can hope to achieve.
And I am never real; it is just a sketch of me.
And everything I made is trite and cheap and a waste of paint, of tape, of time." - Bright Eyes

Wow... I really love your work. All I can say.
