laments of a former "smart" kids

golden child

I feel like a failure

like my best

is never enough

I know I'm not

I wish I could be

inspirational

like those mugs on etsy

that say

"be the leslie knope of whatever you do"

but instead

I'm a former golden child

strained by the weight

of that past knowledge

burdened by the dismal reality

which is my broken dreams

how can I amount to anything?

when I can't bring myself

to get out of bed in the morning

which spirals

until I'm drenched in tears

swaddled in a bathrobe

on my knees

screaming at the top of my lungs

as the page refreshes

and I breathe in

regret

breathe out

self-worth

how can I ever begin to retrieve

what I suppose I never really had?
