Times when everything's against you.Nothings working out...........yeah bad times.

Falling Short

Always reach for gold,
Never been in the top three,
Getting far too old,
Failing that degree.

Best to keep on going,
Less the winner overtakes,
Not aware of knowing,
That it all one big mistake.

Efforts what is needed,
Somehow never is enough,
Breaks are for those leading,
Losers out of puff.

Seem and endless battle,
Fighting for your cause,
Tired of feeling rattled,
At who's making up these laws.

Whats the use in trying,
Throw your hands up in the air,
Inside you are dying,
For this game is just not fair.

Dealing for the deck,
You get a crappy hand,
Feeling like a wreck,
As to you no aces land.

Life is just a bitch you say,
Driving your way home,
Wishing it would end someday
All you do is moan.

Weary as you climb the stairs,
Thought run through your head,
Failure more than you can bare,
Toss and turn in bed.

Sunlight in the window,
Time to start again for sure,
Voices speaking very low,
Tell you to endure.

Up and going at it,
Trying to be the best you can,
Tragically you misfit,
So you switch to your B. plan.

Beaten yet again,
Wonder what's this all about,
Really just a shame,
It the way it just works out.


Beaten, Failure, Failure To Succeed
