Thankless or Think less

Thankless or Think less

A Poem by Daniel Gardner

Changes in my life caused this writing

Image result for silhouette death

I lead a thank less life

Always helping everyone in their moment of need

Never ever does anyone hear my plea

Loved then left

Or Left and never loved

I always try to rise above

In this moment I am lost

Trying to weigh my choices cost

Live for the Dollar not for the smile

Is it true I come off as a clown?

I don’t want to change but I feel I have no choice

I honestly would rather die than live my life as a ghost

Am I too pure or am I inmarture

Is my writing style unique or does it always require critique?

I felt my life had reached its peak

No longer looked at as the Geek

But now I have become a tool

Boy am I nothing but a fool

I have gone through job after job

I felt I had found my career

But now I live in constant fear

Fear of rejection

Fear of imperfection

Why oh why have I not learned my lesson?

Blessed or Stressed

Life is one big test

I am failing and all I try to do is be the best

The best me I can be

Not for you but only for me

I am told who I am, I should fold

It feels like my life is out of control

I am ignored on so many levels

My flower has no more petals

Maybe my thinking needs to cease

Maybe I should end this strife
