(You Know) I Did My Best – Written Saturday 22nd February 2020 (Aged 44)

(You Know) I Did My Best 

i did my best
i have always 
felt,
humbly underrated
it has,
always painted my portrait 
with a palette of judgement
and the brush of fate
i did my best,
i read aloud 
for someone,
who never said they were proud 
i have,
always had that 
sweet humbug paranoia 
that boisterous hope  
that sits outside,
waiting for the smoke 
i did my best
i have always 
felt,
humbly underrated 
ill starred, 
and strangely fated
