Never Enough Read Count : 94

Sub Category : N/A
All her life she tried to confirm
to those rules laid out to her
she was eager, so eager to please
that she lost herself along the way
she tried so hard
Did everything she could
But they just couldn't love her
she chipped away her defenses
Bared her heart and soul
thinking it will be enough
but they were just too hard to please

It took her a long time to discover
that it doesn't matter what she does
it doesn't matter if she barely recognize
the girl staring at her in the mirror
it doesn't matter if she is left
with nothing but an empty shell.
It doesn't matter if sorrow
has become her faithful companion.
They just would never stop.

Never stop seeing her as that girl
That girl who would never be enough.
Enough for their expectations
but she has learn to endure
whatever they throw at her
and maybe someday
she'll stop punishing herself
in her bid to please the world.
