can't save the world,

can't get a grade.

i'm going to fail.

i DON'T fail.

worthless, worthless, worthless,

my brain tells me.

no, no, no, i fight back.

i study but still fail.

i study harder and fail,

with a higher score.

still failure.

spread myself too thin,

focus all my attention—

either way, i fail.

i'm not unstable. i know there are

other areas in which i excell.

but i am failing,

and i can't stand it.
