Never Good Enough
Everyone says that if you try hard enough You have a chance of making it, Well these people are very lucky then Because for me I’m just a misfit. You try and you do your best But don’t reach your goal, There’s no point in trying So I’ll just go hide in a hole. When you don’t make it People give you pity, Back off and leave me alone I’m not some little kitty. I’m constantly being compared To the one person I really hate, Everyone thinks she is so perfect She’s a ten and I’m a negative eight. She looks down on me Watching as I continue to fail, She notices my mistakes But not my skin, completely pale. I’ve given up on life No point in trying anymore, Leave me in the dark Let me die alone on the floor. She will always be better Better than me at everything, Let me die with this knife Cutting my skin, it doesn’t sting. I’m done trying and living I’m done pretending to be tough, She’s the best at everything While I was never good enough.
