I am Struggling with This Middle-Aged Life

Jake Allen Sharp

I feel like a constant failure at life

I stay angry, I don’t even know why

I clinch my fists then I break down and cry

I am struggling with this middle-aged life

It’s like I’m disconnected from the world

My very thoughts pierce my heart like a sword

My own worse enemy, I sabotage myself

I fear my own mistakes, so I hide inside my hell

I feel like a constant failure at life

I stay angry, I don’t even know why

I clinch my fists then I break down and cry

I am struggling with this middle-aged life

It isn’t fair to those that used to know me

I stay isolated So they will never see

I stay angry, I don’t even know why

Nights like this, why do I even try

I feel like a constant failure at life

I stay angry, I don’t even know why

The Wolves Are At My Door

Jake Allen Sharp

Monday morning sound of the Xerox

I look down at my mismatched socks

Goodbye to the weekend, back into the fray

Working for a stack of bills that I can’t pay

The pounding in my head starts again

The voice that scream, ‘you cannot win!’

I push those thoughts aside and try to do my job

It’s hard to pay Paul, when there’s no Peter to rob

Money doesn’t buy happiness neither does being poor

Don’t tell me not to stress when the wolves are at my door
