At birth, a rodent gnawed
The cartilage of my ear,
So comments that I’m flawed
Are all I ever hear.

It isn’t that they’re wrong;
My life’s one big mistake.
As such, the whole day long,
There’s nothing I won’t break.

I’ve tried to take more care;
That only makes it worse –
As much as if I bear
The burden of a curse.

There’s nothing I can do
Except for struggling through.
