It's such a plot tiwst,

When you're your own worst antagonist.


It's not people who hurt you,

It's late night thoughts you drew.


What happens when you're the biggest enemy?

You're your own reason for not smiling.


Trying so damn hard to chipper up

But it's never enough, no you're stuck in a rut.


I guess that this is the way your life ends;

Proof that not everyone can deal with twists and bends.


Especially when the hate's coing from your own mouth,

This whole thing has gone south.


The true epitome of failure,

Go ahead, write your feelings on the paper.
