Failure

The effort, the stress and the tears

All for nothing, not a smidgen of praise

The knowledge I assembled in an artistic way

All for you; for your necessary approval

Meant nothing; dismissed entirely

Pushed aside without a backwards glance

Whilst I faded into the wallpaper

With the realisation I’m just a number to you

A score on your card; a feather in your cap

When I’m deemed good enough

And alas this time I wasn’t worthy

Not even to kiss the soles of your loafers

A mark of your crude and smug comforts

You no longer have to work for it

But have instead have others grovelling to you

For approval that is make or break

And I’m broken.
