Parallelism of Failures

Man in my lifetime I've suffered.
Can I get a reprieve from being mentally fluttered?
Wan attempts at accomplishments leave my psyche cluttered.
My joy is unmistakably skimp.
Sky unleash torrential happiness and cure my emotional limp.
Pry open inner joy as I float away on a happy blimp.
Many nights my shortcomings made me cry.
Plenty days when my melancholy made me feel motivationally dry.
Scanty achievements of success no matter how hard I try.
Please God be my guiding light.
Cease to let me believe that my future doesn't burn bright.
Release unyielding faith internally that everything will be all right.
Manifestations of my failures occur with stark repetition.
Destination for me seems to be a gloomy self-demolition.
Devastation reiterated clout my soul with self-doubting premonitions.
Every night I'm going to say my prayers
To deal with my parallelism of failures.
