Poem : The Nail

In your cruel eyes I am nothing more than a fragile nail.

as you continuously hang your selfish achievements against your depressing wall of fear and insecurity

you hammer down onto that fragile nail pushing it deeper into your wall leading to nothing but destruction

demanding it to sustain and exhibit your self-centered happiness

in every hammer, your success becomes my confused failure

I am just a nail, to the cowardly man.
