I am a waste of space
I don't belong in this place
Hardly anyone likes me
Mabey I should run off and live in a tree
I am a waste of space
Life is like a race
A race I cannot win
All I seem to commit is sin
Nothing I ever do is good
Someone save my life if you could
I am a waste of space
I'm trapped in a locked case
Help me brake this spell I'm under
Please turm my life into a glorious wonder
My life is a bore
My heart is sore
I have a sulken face
Thus I am a waste of space

Worthless commented on Waste of Space READERS DESCRETION IS ADVISED


That's funny and sad at the same time because that is exactly how i feel and alot of those words i use in my writings almost everyday. That's weird we feel the same way. But your young and i'm sure you have family and friends who care, so you have hope.



total of 2 freinds and mom don't care much dad's a bast*** so not much to look forward to

jj, A clever poem that says to me that the subject has been shunned by society due to something beyond their control. It could even be they are hideous similar to Phantom of the Opera. ginga

Every one feels like this until they find their place in it all. There is a unique place that is reserved for you, it won't find you...... you have to find it .... that's life and you will love it.



Thank you for not just saying no you're not.

let me just say.... Your not a waste of space... this is a deep emotion....... God already has saved you just like every-one else...... You have so much in store for you ahead.... We all are just people and we all sin.... None are perfect.... none with out sin.... head up and hold on..... just enjoy the ride God has and will provide...... Red

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
