Practice

Dark Circles
around your eyes
from lack of sleep.
I wonder how you can
be so tired
how can you let this
all get to you
Why is it so
hard
You try hard
you practice
practice
everyday
You smile
you laugh
yet days go by
you feel like a robot
just going
through
the motions.
Nothing you do
seems to turn out
right or good
you stand
by the wayside
crying
hoping
for this happiness
every one says
you deserve.
Why can't
you achieve
your dreams
