Have to Try
Why do I have to try so hard to fit in?
Why can't I be me and not be judged?
If God created us all in His image,
Why do I have to try to be liked?
Why do I have to try to be accepted?
There's no easy answer to the question, is there?
Nobody should have to feel like they're not good enough,
So why do I have to try to be accepted?
Why do I have to try to be someone I'm not?
Am I not enough for someone?
Everyone has their own struggles, sure,
But why do I have to be someone I'm not?
I don't have to try to be perfect,
I just have to be me.
There is nothing that can stand in my way,
Because I don't have to try to be perfect.
