Why am I like this?


Why do you act like you care?


Why do you look and stare? 


Why don't you help me?


Why can't you stay?


Maybe I should take your advice


and end it all today


Wouldn't that be nice?


Would that make you smile?


I know I'm a disappointment


So please stop telling me how I failed


I get it I'm dumb


So stop telling me how you are smarter than me


Your goal is to bring me down


But I've already hit rock bottom
