Never Good Enough


01 Apr, 2016 03:53 AM
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.
