No matter what I do, there seems to be someone who can always do it better

 thought that I was good at something,
but there was always someone better.
My friends don't seem to see,
but I don't let it show, I can't let it show,
how I try to make myself look good,
because that's how I am,
how my home is,
my family,
me.


But I'm always second best,
at school or in my own house,
I know that I'm not liked as much,
as my other friends or my siblings,
but I try to make myself look good,
because that's all I have,
All I have at home,
with my family,
me.

I thought I was good at something,
just one little thing nobody could beat me in,
but then there was something good,
not for me of course, for a friend.
Now I can't make myself look good,
when I'm stuck at second best.
Never first,
never.

I'm always second best.
