Array ( [sid] => 144017 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => Worse Than Most [time] => 2008-07-19 09:07:10 [hometext] => [bodytext] => It seems this is not the worst of lives
But to me it comes pretty close
Bad enough to want to compromise
And a lot than the most

Maybe I'm looking at this
In the wrong way
Seeing my world ruled with an iron fist
And I don't have a say

I've heard of worse personally
I even leant my shoulder
I know they're pain and what they see
To them life seems much colder

It doesn't make me feel better
About my life or about myself
I keep my feelings in an unopened letter
Hiding my secrets on the highest shelf

I agree, the last stanza is a gem. Keep pushing through it, you'll be fine.
