I Can No More Be

I am down under
And I haven’t the lights to see
Minds deserving better
This world I can no more be

The helping hand was beyond my grasp
And I am to reach out to nothing
There were maybes only and perhaps
How am I ever amount to anything?

Closer and closer they were driven from
Further and further they all appeared
Just when I belong they are all gone
Happier was I to have known I’ve feared

And the world shall never know
The world itself didn’t have to
Nothing more to the world I’ll show
When in the world I’m lesser then few

Was I down under?
Is there still a light to see?
Do I deserve better?
When this world I can no more be
