Am I enough
for you
for them

Am I well enough
to succeed
to win

I do not ask to be
on top

I will not ask
to rule them all

What I want
to be
is to be 
enough

I want to be
talented 

I want to be
smart

Instead, I show cracks
through my art

Which will never be
good enough

For me
For you
For they

Expect better of me
I

Expect better of me

Perfection
is an unatainable goal

One that is for
others
not for me

Never for me

Dirty
Useless
Waste of space

Me

Why?
Why can't you ever be

Good enough

I ask as I lay
awake
in the dark

The answer always eludes me
because
I always know that I will
never be

Good enough
to be at last
set free
