“Let us permit nature to have her way. She understands her business better than we do.”
-Michel de Montaigne

You can try all you want
It won't matter
It will always be unoriginal.

That scarf you bought?
I saw it in the other shop
For cheaper.

That doesn't count
It's like saying you went to France
When all you saw was the Eifel Tower.

No, you don't know what I mean
No, you'll never know
No, I don't think you understand.

You can try all you want
Someone will always be better
It's inevitable.

What's the use of crying?
It won't change a thing
Except the level of hydration in your body.

How can I be proud of myself
When you look at it with such aloofness
Until someone else thinks it's special?

No, you're not working hard enough.
No, you're just being lazy.
No, I don't want to hear it.

With all the pessimism in the world
My thoughts swarm like poisonous wasps
Infecting all others with its venom.

The glass is always half empty
It'll never be enough
I will always want more.

Sorry, I'm such a downer.

My own pessimism destroys a lot of my motivation for everything.
