Am I not good enough?

Am I not pretty enough?

Am I not smart enough?

Am I not strong enough?

Am I not funny enough?

Am I enough?

 

I wonder if other people have to worry if they are constantly enough for others or are they always enough,

Is it just me?

 

They always seem so self assured,

Confident.

The opposite of how I feel,

Inadequate.

Hey You— what enables you to be so self confident?

I don't expect anyone to answer.

No one ever does.

 

I'm a walking contradiction,

I am broken and whole,

I am flawed and beautiful,

I am confident and scared,

I am shy and friendly,

I am careful and careless,

but I am me, and that's all I try to be.

 

I truly wish being me could be enough for everyone else,

They never seem satisfied with who I am,

I hope one day I will be okay with not being accepted,

For now,

It remains a one sided battle,

That I can never win.
