Piece Of Paper

I’m like a piece of crumpled paper I’ve been used, written all over The words of a poet are all over me I thought that I’d be the one Sadly, I was wrong As if something like me could ever be good enough Maybe if I was a different kind of paper But instead I’m a piece of crumpled lined paper I’ve been ignored most of my life It’s alright though It only bothers me 7 days a week and 24 hours a day I wonder what life would be like if I wasn’t who I was Would I be hung up with the others for people to view? Would I be used to keep secrets no one will ever know? But instead I’m a useless piece of crumpled lined paper I’ve been picked up by a person Maybe they want me? They are taking me somewhere I’m so happy and excited Maybe I could be hung up for people to see Maybe I could be used to keep secrets no one will ever see I can’t wait for my life to change Wait, they are taking me towards the trash can No! I don’t want to go! Please don’t leave me here all alone They didn’t listen I’ve been tossed into the trash I realized that life isn’t for everyone I lay inside the trash full of tears Life couldn’t get any worse I am now just a sad useless piece of crumpled lined paper.
