This is kinda my life from beginning to end..
Never could get the words right when it comes to describing myself though so it probably is a bit shite.
Nobody The Unwanted -------------------------------------------
Always competing with what came before
With what will come later
And be, evermore
Cowed down 'neath whispers from those up above
Beneath all his betters
He sits, and he sulks
Never knowing the top of the hill
Depending on those who ridicule
For the trace of an ego, or a place to belong
Though physically perfect, his mind can't be strong
And still he aspires to be but one loved
To be the one chosen
Above, all the rest
And still he looks onward towards what can't come
For the one who'd take all
And give all, back in full
I like it, I could relate to the first, although I am the oldest, there has always been apparently something better, i keep trying to avoid comparing, its hard. the third stanza was my favorite especially the line "though physically perfect, his mind cant be strong"...i wouldnt change it to "cannot"..because I dont think it sounds right like that, but hey thats just me. most of my guilt rests in the truth of the 4th stanza.....always wanting to be the one chosen, I finally got my wish, I made myself into one of those people you are suppose to choose, and now i hate it, kinda...lol...anyways..good poem, feelings well expressed, you can see the growth in timed, as you become more aware as to how you change, and what you want,nicely done.
