Should I try anymore

Should I bother getting up

I know I'll only fall back down

I always do

It's a long way up there

I've tried so many times

I've almost gotten there before

(But you know what they say about being close)

And I always end up back here

All those places I thought were solid

All those places I felt secure

They crumbled at the first true test of support

You'd think I'd just run out of places to try

But they do just keep showing up

Though I trust them less and less after each fall

Why should I trust them

They look sturdy

But so did the last one

Why wouldn't this one fall too

Why can't I just stay here

There doesn't seem to be anything worthwhile up there anyway

I guess I'm just too much

Nothing wants to hold me up
