I'm Slow

Feel the shame.
Broken down for the last time.
Wither away.
Take a chance that will be 

I'm so slow at everything.
Is there anything I'm good at?
My talents are limited far and 
What more can we laugh at?
My feelings are long over due.

Time's elapsed.
This has taken forever.
I guess that means I'm slow.
Time's collapsed.
With a little more effort.
I will forget all I know.

I've heard it over and over.
It gets to me.
The shame, the hurt.
It fucks with me.
Yes, I'm slow.
