How can I thrive in this world when my body breaks downs

It’s like driving in nascar with a car that belong in the junkyard 

The driver can be the best of the best 

But it’s the car that makes the race happen  

There’s no race if you don’t have a car that runs right

I’ve barely started my racing career

My car has smoke coming from the engine, a blown tire and a flashing light that won’t stop

The mechanic says there is not much he can do 

It’s a piece of junk, no fault of my own it was made that way

That I did so much with it despite its issues

To keep up the little things

But the glory days are over

the car will barely make it up the street let alone race again  

It’s the mechanic’s job is to fix the car 

If the mechanic can’t do his job how am I supposed to do mine?

Hi, My name is Lily and i'm  a junior at AHS. I'm in 5 clubs: Spanish, Environmental, Project memorial, Civics, and interact. I also just started my own club called Wellness Club. I decided to write because at first it was just an outlet to write my feelings and now hopefully give others the feeling they aren't alone.
