One Compared to Many

You motivate yourselves to gain some prize,
 I squander time in inactivity,
you seek attention in anotherís eyes,
 whilst I wish hide from prying scrutiny.
You socialise and form relationships,
 I isolate, stagnate as time proceeds,
you sink the draft in one or many sips,
 I scupper self, entwined in my own weeds.
You replicate your mould, as it made you,
 and I abstain (still voice may not be dumb),
thereís stasis in your aspirationís view,
 just as there is, in how I feel so numb.
  So as you clamour, multiply, and thrive,
 †I pride myself in that I just survive.
