I'm not good enough,

That's what they all say

I hear their whispers in my sleep,

I live those words each day

Just stop,I plead,

But I know they won't

It's up to me,

To stand up,

To walk away

If I can't hear their words,

Do they truly exist?

The pain can end,

And I know it will,

But only if I make it

This is dedicated to anyone who has every felt put down or worthless. I know it can be difficult, but we have to rise above their words and taughts. You are strong. Just remember it doesn't matter what others think. What you do with your life, today, is the most important.

Thanks so much, Nightingale! You're always so inspirational. I hope that this poem will let people know that even though the hardships they face may be difficult and seem impossible, what they do today is what truly matters. Thank you once again for your feedback.

I absolutely love this poem!! I love the idea you present that even when people tell us we're not good enough, we can still rise above those words and let the pain fade, and be strong. I believe that these words of yours have the power to touch hearts and inspire people :) Definitely five out of five stars! Thank you for posting this, authoress17 :)
