i am trying to move,
but the world tries harder.
i am trying to keep up,
but the world strays farther.

i will look away,
and everything remains.
i look once again,
and nothing is the same.

i never stop working,
yet they effortlessly win.
i say “have mercy,”
yet they move once again.

again and again.
will they never stop?
i hear the fast pace
of the clock's tick tock.

leave me behind
with everything around.
yet nothing in my eye
and no more sound.

i reach out my hands
my last attempt to try
but it seems clear

the world has left me to die.
hi! its been a while since i've posted. this ones about not being enough for everyone else.
