Wasted Talent

I figured it was worth a shot
Everyone deserves a second chance
But what happens when you lose count
When 2nd become 3rd and 4th
And soon you realize you lost youself in chances
That being a 'good person' only hurt you in the end
Nice guy's finish last
And when you cross the line
Your arms raised above your head as you swallow air
You look around and no one's there
And you cry alone because no one cares
You feel defeated because you put yourself out there
You made yourself vulnerable to your own fears
Just to find that failure is something you had done to yourself
Because the saddest thing is wasted talent
