Despondent

I can't keep living like this, waiting for the end.
There are people in my life that wanted more for me.
Wishing to see me make something of myself. To believe in better.
I can't keep hiding like this, behind a face that knows no pain.
Never letting on how much it hurts.
I wish I had someone to talk to, an outsider looking in. Someone who can reassure me rather than lecture.
I have wasted my life, achieved nothing. The only things I can be proud of in my life, are the other people in my life.
They have made future's for themselves, while I am left trailing behind, waiting for divine intervention.
I'm an under-achiever, a non-starter.
I live in other people's shadows.
Go and leave it all somehow.
Say goodbye and don't look back.
