Torn

October 19, 2012
When all you ever wanted was to shine,
and the only thing you could ever do was fade.

When all you wanted was to succeed,
and the only thing you could ever do was fail.

When all you wanted was to be happy,
and the only thing you could ever be was sad.

When all you wanted was to make someone proud,
and the only thing you could do was disappoint.

When all you wanted was good news,
and the only news you get is bad.

When you have to pretend you are anything but sad.

When you thought you were okay but you're not.

When you thought everything was going to turn out fine,
nothing does.

When you start to believe you're stronger than you are,
you realise you are not, and never will be.

When you start to think about how worthless, stupid and dumb you are.

When you thought none of this would happen to you.

When your life is all just a sick joke.

And you wonder if God is up there laughing at you.

When did the future switch from being a promise to being a threat?
