This poem is extremely personal, and I wrote it when I was in a really bad place a few months ago. There are some things I'll never understand, but now I know that's it's worthless trying to please others. Live for yourself, and be the judge of your own achievements.

I’ll never understand
the reason why I
was the neglected one
since I always shined brighter
than the blazing sun.

Haunting for gold coins
only gets you so far if
the gold coins collector
collects gold coins
no more.

And I’ll never get
the recipe to their
longed success but I
am starting to believe
they really never
tried at all.

So I guess I’ll
also stop trying and
keep collecting them
gold coins but this
time will be different ‘cause
the gold coin collector
will be me.
