My whole life all I've wanted

Was to seem somewhat okay

To blend in with the crowds

Just so that they'd stay

But people got too close to me

Can't they see I'm damaged goods

So much baggage I can't carry

And feeling so misunderstood

This comes across as pathetic

It's not attention that I seek

I don't want you to see me

For I have grown far too weak

My energy seems to always drag

Even the strongest to their knees

I wear them down with every word

Until they can't hear my pleas

It's best if you just walk away

Save yourself while you still can

For I am but a sorry excuse

Of what most people call a man

I destroy the positive

It's self-loathing that I stew in

While your eyes turn away from me

I'll bring my world to RUIN.
