Not Worth Saving

I’m drowning
in a pool of my mistakes.

It’s my own fault I can’t swim.

I struggle to breathe
as the waves crash against me.

But it’s no use.
I tire and tire of trying
to convince myself I can change.

There’s no hope for me.

So if you’re trying to be my hero,
don’t bother.

I’m not worth saving.
