Life... or something like it

written by: Sweet Insanity

Always pushing
Needing more
Never giving up
Never giving in

Do your best
Make it work
Push Harder

Not good enough
Disappointment
Failure

Try more
Focus more

Failing
Falling

Cry more
Scream more

Do it again
Do it better
Breathe

Can't get it going
Just not cutting it
Destruction
The End

Can't give up
Can't make it work

Letting everyone down
Letting myself down

Always pushing
Needing more
Never giving up
Never giving in

This kind of reads like noises a machine makes in a factory. Repetitive, persistent, stubborn, and unrelenting. The style compliments the meaning quite well.

Thank you! That was what I was going for! Kind of like a train... the I think I can train... pushing... driven! I'm glad it came across

It's good. I like the line , 'The end.' But then you let us know it's not the end. It was a good clue as to what you were trying to say to us.

Thank you! I'm glad that you got that! It's like when you're fed up and you can't do anymore and then you realize it's not in you to stop.

i feel this way right now. thank you. i also know the feeling of hopelessness "the end" is trying to convey. seeing that it is bigger than you, and saying no...i won't/can't quit. lord i get it. thanks!!
