Ever felt as if you are hopeless?
As if you are utterly dumb,
As if you are a total mess?
Ever felt as if you are foolish?
As if you are totally wrong,
As if your thoughts are rubbish?
Ever felt as if you are stupid?
As if no good decision you make,
As if, for nothing, was all the good you did?
Ever felt as if you are a moron?
As if you are mentally ill,
As if, to society’s burden, an add-on?
Ever felt as if you are drowned?
As if people abhor you,
As if, at you, every passer-by frowned?
If, all of this has occurred to you,
Congratulations, you succeeded in failing miserably!
If all of this has occurred to you,
Hurray, you’ve found reasons to end your life.
And if not,
Sadly, you are to continue in this world,
Waiting for the day
When it shall occur to you
And when you shall overcome it all,
What, you think, the rest couldn’t do at all,
But just what the rest thought at times all.
