Doesn't matter how hard I try 
to be number one
I'm always going to be number 
Number one doesn't count
Number one doesn't matter
Number two is always going to 
be fatter 
And always at the bottom of 
the ladder
I try so hard to be the one
But then someone else comes 
I can't find the strength to do it 
much longer
I've had to much pain from 
always being two
All I ever wanted was to be the 
But this will never happen in 
this life
I'm not a strong person
I haven't done anything at all
I've just gone through life each 
day being a beaten wife
My heart breaks each and 
every day
I can't take it much longer and 
don't have the strength to stay 
To find the correct words to use 
Just makes my mind more 
I've been physically and 
mentally hurt beyond repair 
And this has left me so dam 
Just sitting in the edge waiting 
for my wings to open and fly
Soaring the highest mountains 
before I hit the ground
Buried deep beneath the 
No one would ever know if not 
The people I leave behind 
Most likely want mind as the 
have pretended to be kind 
My children will hurt most of all
But at least they would have 
known I gave it my all
Life for some will go one
Smiles and laughter will be 
heard all around 
But for me I would have been 
set free
Selfish I know but what else 
could I do
Tears fill my eyes most of the 
My mind is to busy for this 
human race
Being so broken is to over 
whelming to go on 
This is why I'm singing Gods 
I've struggled for years to get 
the help I need 
But professionals just close the 
door and say I'm a lost cause 
Another reason I'm always 
number two 
That's the difference between 
me and you

    I am praying with all my heart that this isn't written from experience....but the words are too true. I've also been in this dark place and found writing my thoughts down to be therapeutic. Stay strong, you have too much talent to let it go to waste!
