If At First You Don't Succeed

My professional life is going well, unfortunately life is like a seesaw and my personal life goes down to counterbalance the achievement.

If At First You Don't Succeed

If at first you don't succeed
You should try and try again
How many failures
Until you know
It isn't worth the pain

To want and hold, but cannot have
That's just how life can be
To aspire and dream
To lose and fail
The pattern repeats eternally

Disappointment and shattered hopes
Litter the disasterous wake of my life
My dreams shrink
But still are dashed
Why bother trying? It won't go right

And people wonder why I've given up
Why should I try something just to fail
The biggest problem
I have is me
Each day my self-loathing swells

I don't care what people think of me
Their opinion's no concern of mine
Life's a load of shit
And then you die
It's a pointless waste of time


Depression, Depressive Disorders, Failure, Failure To Succeed, Hopelessness
