I hate this feeling
this need
I hate to feel this need to try

Try for perfection
and try for acceptance
To try for tolerance
and try for sufferance

The inauspicious spoils of effort
of striving in places where you should not be  

And this feeling
This empty, withering feeling
of not enough
never enough

Along with the secret knowing
The sad understanding that you've given up
what you should have had
for a thing you didn't really want

I hate this feeling
this need
I hate to feel this need to try
that keeps me going round and round

To the tune of . . .

"Around we go, around we go
Around we go

Around we go, around we go
Around we go, around we go

Heh.Heh Just felt silly. Liked your poem, that song just stuck in my head.

insatisfaction is global as long as we live , and it can concern a lot of things , from material to spiritual, your poem weaves a lot of thoughts,

have a n good day
