You'll never be good enough."
The words echo in my head,
Bouncing off my skull,
Each blow hurting more than the last.
As I look around,
I see the one's I love,
Doing the things that I can't do.
For I was rejected from the world of:
"Totus mundus agit histionem"
And "To be, or not to be"
Rejected from the world of:
So as I watch the one's I love run off,
Into the worlds I can't be a part of,
I stare at the blank sheet of paper in front of me.
This simple sheet of paper giving me hope,
The hope that I am good enough,
For this blank piece of paper is my world,
A world where no one can touch me,
A world where I rule above all.
As my pencil races across the blank sheet,
I remember a piece of a famous song,
"She holds the hand that holds her down
And I know,
That I will rise above.
I will rise above in my own way,
With this sheet of paper, no longer blank,
I will be good enough.
