On The Door Steps

On the Door Steps

Constantly knocking

constantly falling short

constantly coming up short of my goal

constantly fighting acceptance

a constant disapproval I let get me down

constantly wearing a depressed face.

Constantly walking without any sense of direction

a constant downpour of pain and suffering, deception and deceit

constantly settling for no Bianca

constantly having no sunshine in my city

constantly settling for last place no more!
