Rejection
by Adam

So much rejection
How much can I take
So much resention
Happiness I fake

A smile of years ago
Now turns pale
Into a blank stare,
I think I have failed..

The constant rejection
Has struck me dumb
Yet I feel no pain,
Only numb.

It will never happen
Loneliness forever
If things were a little different..
This life should've been better.

What is wrong with me?
It's easy to see
They worry what I look like,
For judgment that's all they need.

Those shallow excuses
Those obvious lies,
Every time I hear one,
I feel I want to die.

Every time they say it,
They close another door
And I feel my soul die
Just a little bit more.
