and then

 Why canít I find just a moment to be content with

There isnít one thing to love

I am nothing

If not a failure

I am nothing

What do you care

Why canít I be good at anything

Why is there pressure when I just canít handle it

What will become of the shell I inhibit

I am nothing inside

I am rotten inside

I canít fight this

Its overpowering

And I canít find the energy to rise above

Leave me to my escape

Within myself

I will destroy myself

I can only see the bad

I am a failure

I say it over and over again

And then I give up.
