My youth

Bleed a thousand tears,
for all the wasted, sad years
Jester stands alone
Blend in, standing out,
Insecurity rules all
Who am I really?

Yes, I bled a thousand tears of self-pity today, but I bought a bottle of whisky and my contempt and hatred has returned. It's a complex balancing act, but I wrote a miserable broken-hearted love song as well. Things are looking up!

Thanks, Craig, and yep, it's a balancing act and I'm wobbling badly!
