Whatever I try and do

will never be good enough,

whether it is something planned

or completely off the cuff.

I don’t have to have someone

beat me down

for all I have to do

is look in a mirror to see a clown.

Any ideas I might have

never last too long,

it only takes a short while

for them to realise they don’t belong.

A useless embittered man

I have become

who spends his days drinking

in order to feel numb.

Any hope of redemption

has passed its use by date

now I just catalogue all the things

about myself that I hate.
