|The Joke Of The Day Is Me
I dont trust people because I'm always the one who ends up getting hurt.
I don't trust people because it's always everyone else who gets ahead while I suffer.
I don't make friends because it only causes dissapointment and pain.
I don't make friends because it's a waste of time to put effort into something that is only going to crash and burn.
I stay to myself because at least that way when things go wrong I only have myself to beat up over it.
I stay to myself because it's better that way for everyone.
I am a fool
I am a joke
I am a loser
I am a weakling
And I hate it

Great stuff. Actually you are the one who is intelligent, strong and a true winner for commiting and staying true to your morals and values. I too, sometimes hate the fact that there seems to be no-one else who values true friendship anymore. However, that is no fault of mine.
If you removed everything before line 7, you'd have something stronger, as the preceeding lines sound like whining, not poetry. Those remaining lines say so much in a small, compact presentation.
I have learned that the world is not usually the problem, if Everyone responds to you in the same way. We all have to work hard to connect.
Keep your head up. Deep inside you're stronger than they'll ever be.
