Am I

My life has been

A series of disappointments

Many at my own hand

As a kid I was shy

And just got by in school

I never had the courage

To stand up for myself

I thought I was lucky in love

But alcoholism ruined

My happily ever after

My latest blunder

Involves a large dish of ice cream

I can’t lose this weight

If I keep stress eating

So often I see myself

As the problem in the equation

Sometimes I just wonder

Am I worth the space I take up
