The glaring sun is blinding me

Each and every ray finding me

The sweltering heat is cooking my skin

I can feel my blood boiling from within

I can’t escape this inevitable meltdown

Of feeling like I’m everyone’s let down

I try so hard, I’m always doing my best

But my efforts are discounted by every mess

I’m not perfect, I’m going to make mistakes

I give all of myself and everyone takes and takes

But it’s never good enough, I’m not good enough

My exterior is cracking, inside I’m not that tough

While the glaring sun is blinding me

And each and every ray is finding me

I’ll ignore the sweltering heat on my skin

I’ll ignore my blood that I feel boiling within

I’ll keep telling myself positive affirmations

Keep holding out, keep having patience

I’ll put on a good face, act like sanity is mine

F’d up, Insecure, Neurotic, Emotional, but fine
