What am I waiting for?   † †
my needs I just ignore † † † † †
surround myself with lovely things,† † †  
my smile is on the floor. † †
†† † † † †
Iíve not yet left the nest † † † † †
and some say I am blessed, † †
from outside you may be right † † † †  
inside, I'm still depressed. † † † † †
† †  
I feel I've failed in life † † † † †
craving the afterlife †† † † † †
this constant pressure to be better † † † †  
internal battle strife. † † † † †
† †  
Why do I complain? † † † † †
what is there to gain? † † † † †
slap myself into submission, † † † †  
surely turn insane. † †  
† † † † †
Where do I begin? † † † †  
start looking within? † † † †  
this demon tries to choke me dead † † † †  
just take it on the chin? † † † †  
† †  
I used to think Iím smart,† † † †  
my mind has come apart † † † † †
with every word, my throat clogs up † †
*thump* my bleeding heart.
