I can't believe how stupid I am!
Will I ever realize I can't be perfect,
when all my hopes refuse to die even though I can never reach them?
Can't I go seven minutes without making a fool of myself?
Can't I speak even six seconds without being told to shut up,
when everything I never say burns so hot I cannot keep it in?
I thought my best effort would be good enough;
I thought my purest intentions would carry me through.
I thought myself a genius, capable of solving any of life's equations.
Now I can't believe how stupid I am.
