Never a Chance

Never a Chance

Was never even close
Not ever a thought
Was not supposed to be
Should have never been
Cheated having life
A life was given though
No soul designated
Just a broken spirit
An old rusty broken
Discarded unwanted spirit

It’s me all that – am
All – will ever be
Nothing more – could be
You know it’s just me
Cheated having spirit
To me a spirit was given
Like spit in the wind
Just a broken spirit
An old rusty broken
Discarded unwanted spirit

– wonder alone along
Discarded and deserted
Down the dirty path
Seeking acceptance
Discouraged and depleted
Instead find nothing
Nothing but the same
Just a broken spirit
An old rusty broken
Discarded unwanted spirit

It’s me, all that – am
All that – will ever be
But it’s all – have
All – ever have
Nothing more could – have
Like spit in the wind
Just a broken spirit
An old rusty broken
Discarded unwanted spirit

Ever since the beginning
Alone – laid alone – played
Nothing else – never knew
Alone – stayed and alone – prayed
Never afraid still – paid
Just a broken spirit
An old rusty broken
Discarded unwanted spirit

The price for the gain
The life should never been
The soulless discouraged
Nothing more than the same
Just a broken spirit
An old rusty broken
Discarded unwanted spirit

But it’s all i’ll ever have
With my old rusty broken
Discarded unwanted spirit
Down the dirty path
Seeking acceptance
The only success to ever be
Is never haven given up

i have had a couple of close friends short term, but otherwise i have spent my whole life alone. My parents distanced themselves from me but not my siblings. Loneliness happens when we are not acceptable for who we are. Not being accepted is a thick heavy shroud that is impossible to lift without being accepted. i have come close to giving up a few times but somehow i fight on for the hope that someday i will meet others, like me, and they will accept me like i accept them. littlegreenthing.com has been many things, but now it is another attempt to connect with others that feel the same weight that i do.
