Am I breathing?

I don't know,

I don't care.

Why should I care?

Is my one breath going to save the world?

I'm just a pollutant,

Poisoning the air.

You don't need me.

I'm useless.

I'm a failure.

I'm stupid.

I'm useless.

There's nothing I can do but sit and wait for something;

Something that may never come.

I live my whole life in anticipation and fear,

Of that something that may never come.

Should I just give up, give in, or let myself live in spite,

Of that something that may never come?

Look at me,

Watch me be

All I can be.

Tell me how good I am.

Tell me I'm still breathing,

Laughing,

In the face,

Of that something that may never come
