Dirt

I feel so low, they’ve pushed me down

and kept my head beneath the water

I try to please yet they criticize, scrutinize

every single thing I do

I say

as I can’t do anything right

 

I feel useless, abandoned, neglected,

thrown aside for the vultures to feast on

They couldn’t possibly do anymore

take more

for I have nothing

I feel nothing

I am nothing

 

I am empty now

nothing but a shell

and I am left emotionless, the uncertainty

Has hardened my heart, my soul

my humanity

 

They’ve done all the damage and now

I am nothing but dirt
