Pearls of wisdom, or stupidity?

Pearls of wisdom, or stupidity?

A Poem by Ddraper

I've got the will, but lacking craft.
I'm an ideas factory that's understaffed.
Can't sleep, yet tired.
Feeling brain dead but fully wired. 
Searching for the f***s I want to give,
make shifting my own pain like a shiv.

Loving life, but hating myself.
That's like a conveyor with no belt.
Between giving up and breaking through.
Having the full picture, and only a clue.
Being fed lies only made me spit out
the truth.

You hate me because I love you,
Love me because I hate you.
They say opposites attract,
but I've found the opposite of that in fact.
And what is that?

A hypocritical world,
Giving birth to a hypocritical pearl.
Because apparently this place is our oyster.
Although why would you want to live inside
something which is clamed shut?

A poem or song is supposed to end with a
Rhyme, BUT.......
I never claimed this was either.
I'm just reaffirming my lack of craft.
Is a hypocrit really a hypocrit,
If this fact they do not mask?
