A wasted life

The joys of life seem to have forgotten me

The smiles and laughter from others not me

I stand alone feeling empty

Surrounded by people, they all walk on by

No one will notice me, perhaps I should cry

I get pushed and shoved, to them I am in the way

Not a sorry, or a pardon me, to anything I say

I start to move, trying to get on with life

But why am I here, what is the point of this strife

If I died right now, right here on this spot

Who would miss me, who would rather I'd forgot

To get up this morning, to have stayed where I lay

To keep to myself, not have gotten in their way

I face all their anger, I'm the person no one wants

Get the message you freak, go deal with your faults

Alone in the dark where no one can see

Stay away, far away, don't come anywhere near me

Why don't you do us a favour, you waste of space on this earth

Waste of oxygen, you pointless struggle through birth

I run to my room, they are right, words not spoken but seen on their face

This world is cruel, not for me, not at this pace

Perhaps another time

But right now I am in the wrong place at the wrong time

Ugly, and fat, with marks on my skin

Who would love me, a creature of sin

Gluttony and greed, has resulted in a loner

A cause for the cracks in the mirrors, the disgust in their persona

A sleeping pill or two, will steady me tonight

A leak of gas, a fire timed just right

No pain, not anymore, no longer of this world, I am free at last

No one at my funeral, no one knows my past

Born unloved, died unloved, that's how it's meant to be

Completely befitting, for an ugly,unncessary creature like me
