When your told to be yourself but its not what people really want.


I was always told to be myself.

Here I am today

and all I am doing is being myself.

I thought you said that would

good enough for you and others.

But its no longer good enough.


I wanna be carefree and free spirited.

I wanna be say whats on my mind.

I wanna say it how it is.

No matter what though I know

it won't be good enough.

The person I wanna be so badly

is no longer good enough for anybody.


You look me in the eyes almost everyday

and you say baby you're good enough

for me no matter who you are

and it don't matter what others think.

But I try to me around you

and I get yelled at about what I say

and the way I act anymore.

So even for you I don't feel good enough anymore.


I'm afraid that I know deep in my heart

that I'll never be good enough for anybody.

We all know how it is to feel that way, you express it very well. Hopefully as you get older you'll realise you just have to be true to yourself and anyone who wants you to be how THEY want you to be, doesn't deserve to be listened to.
