The Best of You

You tried so hard and
stayed so true and
yet it got the best of you.

Yes, the best of me is what
it had, so there’s no need
to be so sad.

The world has turned me
downside up and made me
drink the bitter cup.

And when the dregs had
done their thing, I sat
right down to cry, then sing.
