Inadequacy

I no longer know what I can do,

in everyone’s eyes my time is already up to be anything.

Regulated to the trash bin is any bright future I could have had,

is any respect I could have earned,

I have no earning potential now

-at least none that matters.

I do not know how to walk this path I never wanted to follow,

and though I have tried many times to leave it

something always pushes me back, over, down.

I am lying helpless asking for a chance of redemption,

I never meant to fail you.

It’s Terrifying

It builds in your chest like a mass of cells,

replicating, spreading, destroying you

from the inside and you can feel it burn

like smoke, can’t catch it can’t grab it.

The terror escapes you in one wordless scream

as you are faced with your own mortality.
