Your Wrestle With Life


Nobody wants you this much is true
Might as well be a tiny cloud in a sky of blue
Unseen and unnoticed within their midst
Might as well be a spirit unseen and unkissed,

Nobody wants you that's a natural fact
You're the invisible man never caught in the act
You used to be a dashing stud such a stylish gent
Now a gold digger's worst nightmare with malcontent,

Nobody wants you when you turn on the charm
She acts as though you'll do her harm
No matter what you do you get rejected
Like a fighter pilot whose been ejected,

From a perfectly good jet plane
Perhaps one day you'll just go insane
Nobody wants you no girl friend or wife
How did this ever happen in your life?

Now you're the astronaut lost in orbit
You're so dejected you can't absorb it
A department store mannequin no one talks to
Nobody wants you this much is true,

There's a new game now you haven't got a clue
Look at that fool in the mirror staring back at you
Picking up pieces of your crumbling self hood
Looking back you swear you did all you could,

Nobody wants you that realization is true
Never could you have thought this could happen to you!
Nobody wants you why did you deserve that?
Losing your wrestle with life you got pinned to the mat.

Some of these rhymes are interesting, particularly orbit/absorb it.

Kosher A lot of so called poet laureates and experts who brandish such methods as iambic pentameters frown on rhymes but the rhythm of a poem hardly flows without them, Besides it's quite a challenge to think of them and convey them effectively.
