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.
