Irony

Written by: Brittany Gentry

Neck and neck,
Could taste something new,
And was rejected.
Because I was good,
Too good at something else.
She was a nobody,
Reaching for something she never had,
Respect.
I got nothing,
Even though I gave everything I had.
My body,
My heart,
My being entirely.
I thought I deserved it,
Everyone thought I did,
But I guess not.
I deserve to be nothing more
than a pawn,
Commanded by the major.
