Never Good Enough

Never Good Enough

A Poem by Rachel Anderson
"

There's always that one person that makes us feel unworthy, like we aren't worth anything. This is to them.

"
I'm sorry I'm not good enough.
I'll never be that girl.
It's like you want to see me fail,
so you can remind me yet again
that I'm not good enough to share your world.

I'm sorry I'm not good enough
to be seen on your arm.
I'll never be a trophy wife,
As you so lovingly reminded me.
I'll never bring anything but harm.

I'm sorry I'm not good enough
to hold my own in strife.
The shot heard 'round the world,
its echo retells my tale:
I wasn't good enough for life.

You penned out such a raw feeling out that can be felt for many women on this planet... who deal with this suffering in a relationship... I think I love the way you express the protagonist feelings here.

It gives a feeling of being seen so "Worthless, and Helpless" thank you for sharing your insightful poem.

We are all worthy and valuable in this life and our worthiness come from God and not from people who set the bar of worthiness for it is all subjective in the end. You are a worthy human and poet. Excellent...:)......

Not too bad? Damn. And here I was hoping for more excitement from you, Ricochet!
A heartbreaking truth you tell that I am sure many around you could relate. I sure could. It's mainly my family I am never good enough for. I always seem to not be doing the right thing and they openly rub it in my face. School I'm not too good at either, so many people rub that in. But in order to be able to push on in life, one must accept their flaws completely. It's not easy, but once you do that, nothing and no one can bring you down because you are able to understand and know yourself to a point where whatever they tell you, simply won't matter or affect you.

A heartfelt piece came from the heartbreaking heart. An aching poem of the day is this. How much hurt your heart has got .. how the pain rips the heart off, everything's nicely penned... and well demonstrated into the words. An emotional poem you've drawn .. nice work.
