The Price of Living

I am but a man who goes about their days in normal fashion and daily routine, I am not noticed, but those who have, have found a friend loyal but lonesome, yet this person sees all who know him and ponders and thinks about such reputation that they have gained, that they hear and soon know that you are famous for your idleness in the room, for your intellect about indepth topics, but… you stand alone as you really know that these people take no real notice of your life, you way up all that is wrong about you: your looks are not great, your body is in shambles being underweight, no muscle, no strength, your skin is covered in a virus that you see no end too, even your organs do not work as they should, all of this is weighed up and then you look at your life as having no friends, no real purpose, nothing really… all you can think about is your life in third person, you are consious of your problems, you think more indepth about anything than anyone else in the world, since you are this you realise that you are a walking critique… "what a terrible life I live " I say, yet you consider taking your own life by your wretched weak hands, but you cannot for you judge that and that you are a coward… your morals stand in your way along with your ever so observant mind, thus you cannot obtain peace in death… and so you walk your miserable life in a world which you would rather see burn into oblivion, so you live in a cage of living outside of it is death your freedom, but your key is taking your own life and so you are stuck in it forever, that is my price for living where every night I dream of death and it brings a smile to my face, yet sadness for it cannot be done for I am a coward who would rather live, so what is your price for living in this dreadful world?
