obscured and blind
to everything outside
believe me I've tried
to be friendly and to smile

but I've been sick for a while
decomposing in this mire
I know that time doesn't rewind
so what's left of it is mine

I'd be happy to attempt
to progress again
but in light of this predicament
the pursuit of "fitting in"
just seems so meaningless

failing something so simple is inexcusable
but being ill-prepared
also isn't fair

I'm a prick
I know
I wish it wasn't so
but it is
I guess all I can ask for is forgiveness

but it's all unknown
for now anyway
this cocoon
is either my birth
or my grave
