The Loser

The Loser
That one person
you shamefully cast away
Same person you forget about
when you pray
No one has nothing good
to say about him
His light is steadily fading
from shallow to dim
The night air seems to burn
his lungs a bit more
All of his life is exposed
like a house without a door
All the people speak down to him
but nobody will share his pain
The loser awakes everyday
fighting not just for air
but hoping to make
one ounce of gain
