Should I?

A Poem by Canicus

I feel so useless
esteem so ruthless

It feels
so hard not to quit
I try
to fight for better

I want
to be something in
This world
not another face

I wish
and dream for the stars
But I
just want to give up

Should I
give up my dreaming
And stop
trying to change things

Meant to rhyme but I got too carried away.

This is incredibly relatable and honest. I adore the first stanza, it immediately caught my attention and the rhyming is perfect.
Also, I don't think there's anything wrong with being 'just another face', especially considering there's no such thing when one zooms in and regards smaller worlds rather than all of Earth.

I look forward to reading more of your work, I literally haven't been on this site for more than a year so it might take a while to catch up.

Don't stop dreaming.

I feel your emotions so much. Honestly, I've been struggling against the same thing. I mean, no matter how much I try to make everything better, it's just not enough. I feel like giving up. I feel like leaving my passions behind. I feel like changing. However, I took those as a challenge to strive harder and to learn more about myself. The world is cruel. We have to face the truth. But keep in mind that giving up will lead us nowhere so stay strong. Clutch the rope tighter and remind yourself why you're living, why you're looking for betterment.

This struck me hard, something that paints sorrow and realism. Great work.
