Second best

Second best

Second best

A screaming

Shrieking

Deafening crescendo

Banging pressure

Thrumming 

Beating

Crying

Shouting

Second best!

Im second best

Second best

Always been

Second best

No, no!

Second best

Why?!

Im second best

And my heart is 

Breaking

Am i

Even

Good enough?

Never been

Good enough

A lie

One. big. Lie

Second best

Big ugly

Worthless 

Shallow

Selfish

Second best

Noooo!

I wish i was something meaningful

Am i 

Anything

But

Second best?!

Nothing

I am nothing

Have i ever thought

I meant anything

At all?

All this while 

I never knew

That i was just

Second best
