Never

A Poem By Gina I. // 4/5/2017

All I ever hear is
You’re not worth it
I get beaten down
And I can’t forget it
I’m told to grow up
And I’ll never be enough
And every time they say it
I cry a little inside
I die a little inside

I’ll never be good enough
Never be smart enough
Never be enough
For them

I’ll never be wise
To the world, I’m a fool
To the popular kids
I’m too much a nerd
To the nerds, far too cool
I can’t find a home
A place to call my own
And I cry a little inside
I die a little inside

I’m sorry I’m not good enough
I’ll never be smart enough
I’ll never be loved
By them

This is painfully relatable

This is painfully relatable in some ways. :) well done. The rhythm is pleasing.

"The lines and verses are only the outward garments of the poem and are no more really it than your ruffles and flounces are YOU. The real poem is the soul within them . . . and that beautiful bit is the soul of an unwritten poem. It is not every day one

Thank you for sharing...

And don't forget: You are very worth it. :)

Thank you both! It's something I have trouble realizing often.
