I am not good enough for those i want
i am not good enough for any job
i am not good enough for this life

Low self esteem and depression
Applied at every place in town a dozen times
No one seems to want to hire me

i sit and feel sorry for myself
i try to make get ahead in life
But i dont seem to get anywhere
it is as though i am standing still

i want to feel loved and wanted
No One seems to show me they care
Bitching and complaining
Yelling and negativity
Is all if am getting

Gossip and hating
That is what they are doing
I am human
i need some compassion

Stop hating
If You cant be nice
Then got away
And let me be
Wipe me from your memory
