Do I Stand A Chance?

Do I stand a chance?

I am not creative or possess a talent

I’m sorry I have not experienced horrible, painful, branded, unforgettable pain not just physically but emotionally

I do not have it all but I sure as hell haven’t had the worst

I have the support, protection, and love I need but that can only get me to certain point

Cause in this world you need money to get you ahead.

Do I stand a chance?

To stand out with these words, when all I feel right now is that I stand no chance

I hate to put myself down, but can these words even compare?

To those who have had it hard, need this, are full of confidence, and will not be stopped.

Now i'm asking should I go for this?

Cause if I do succeed, it would be hard to accept.

I would think of all of those who have been through the worst.

Everything is getting so confusing and I just don’t know.

I want to cry from the confusion.

I want someone to tell me what to do and how to feel.

I know I should live my own life but I didn’t ever think it would be this real.

I just don’t know.

I really don’t know.

Do I stand chance?
