I’ve Been Thinking Too Much

I’ve been thinking too much

About how I’m never good enough,

How I’m always falling short

Of the shit I want the most.

How I never seem to matter,

I can never get things done,

How I’m always a stepping-stone

Not the first, nor the last one.

My feelings and opinions

Are always too big or too small,

And I just keep falling short

While the others are rising tall.

My two worlds are divided

And they keep getting further away,

Every time I want to change shit,

Me, myself, I betray.

I always wonder “what if”,

I think about the past, the future, and such,

And then I remember:

Fuck, I’ve been thinking too much.
