A Story by DemonicSableye

Heavily based on the character Marcus from the book "We Are the Ants"

I have friends
Till the end
and they lend
me help through life

Help me cheat
in more ways than one.
But they keep talking
Even when I say I'm done.

I have to be the greatest
That no one can possibly detest
be the latest, straightest, all around best!
But I'm still a person, right?
I can have problems, get into a fight?

But no, I must be perfect.
Hide my feelings.
No disrespect.
Bully weaklings.

So much pressure.
From these oppressors.
My true self is fading,
Like I'm wading
Further and further
into oblivion.
