I'm feeling down
I can't shine like that
I'm always the lesser flower
I have never been the one
That captivated, that stunned
Never been the beautiful one
And I know
It's been said
Im the lesser
The fowl
Someday I might grow
Into something that can thrive
But for now
Im the ugly
And I dont feel quite so alive
