Azura Nightsong

Mediocre


Drowning in mediocrity
Breaking my bones just to appease
The drive to be the best I can
Regardless of the screaming child
Dragging me down from thoughtful heights
To never relinquish its grasp

My soul, my voice, the heart within
That daily climb you throw at me
Can't bear to slip even one time
I tricked myself, shove down the voice

I will never be enough

Cause I believed that I could run
With all those hungry wolves above
Delusion shattered fallen wings
Convincing me to end my goal
Blisters adorn my feet like jewels
Turn back and die they scream


My soul, my voice, the heart within
That daily climb you throw at me
Can't bear to slip even one time
I tricked myself, shove down the voice

I will never be enough

Ignore his whisper in my ear
Though long since it had come to pass
Cannot escape the shadow dance
Refuse to sing my agony
Do not compare to the demons
They don't deserve the insult

My soul, my voice, the heart within
That daily climb you throw at me
Can't bear to slip even one time
I tricked myself, shove down the voice

I will never be enough

The warning called out from the dust
Chose to not heed their wisdom's hand
The Jack of All, Master of None
It is too late, do not turn back
Just choose a fucking path they said
I just kicked myself to the ground

My soul, my voice, the heart within
That daily climb you throw at me
Can't bear to slip even one time
I tricked myself, shove down the voice

I will never be enough

Break all my bones just to appease
The monster I hold within

    Reads like a song. A lot of repetition, but it works. Good write.
