I'm a reject.
I suck at it all day.
I’ve got a life.
That's going the wrong way.

I'm often stereotyped.
Sometimes goth or emo.
And I simply have to write about it.
Just to let you know.

I'm in need of some attention.
Won't you come and play?
Join me on my pathetic path.
And live a lie every day.

I'm really just a poser.
Twenty four seven pain.
And I'm doing time.
Because I don't use my brain.

I’m a real downer.
A genuine mystery.
For those who can’t see the facade.
Of who I'm trying to be.

I’m trying to hate most things.
I easily get pissed at life.
Melodramatic describes me.
I enjoy causing strife.

I’m the self-pitying type.
Who prefers to whine.
No genuine contribution from me.
I’m here to waste your time.

I'm a good for nothing pessimist.
Inflicting my pain on you.
And there's no hope for me.
While I still do what I do.

I’m the hopeless dark one.
Who really is afraid.
But I often show my anger.
Just so I don’t make the grade.

I'm a state of denial.
I’m my own lover.
I don't need practical advice.
I prefer to run for cover.

I'm pretending life's hard.
Trying so hard to be cool.
An embarrassment to other people.
Who know I am a fool.

I'm not prepared to open my eyes.
Don't want to take responsibility.
For the person I really am.
The reject I choose to be.

Actually liked this. Good rhyming scheme and rhythm. Rhythm is pacing. Achieved by having the same or a similar number of syllables in each line.

Liked the presentation as well. Gave it a "5".

The message seems to be serious but dealt with frivolously. You need to post more work and start responding to comments in English instead of German. In other words try to please your readers.

Happy trails,

Ed Bradley.
