    Luck usually deserts me at crucial moments
    My life is a saga of sufferings and torments
    A sincere and honest trier I have always been
    Yet, fame and success I have rarely seen

    Failing to keep up with the latest trends,
    I was shunned by my relatives and friends,
    though I tried hard to meet their expectations,
    and listened to them with great patience

    I don't know how a talented girl fell in love with me
    Poor me, I thought destiny had listened to my plea
    But soon she realised that her decision was wrong
    She wanted her man to be assertive and strong

    "You have no x-factor, and it's over." she said
    Her words were poured down my soul like molten lead
    I own a splintered heart and a badly bruised soul,
    but I still have my life and I need to set a goal

    Not everything is lost, and I must fight hard
    Every depressing thought I ought to discard
    To be disheartened and pessimistic I must cease
    I promise to pick myself back up piece by piece
