What do you do,
when you're not good enough,
Your patience goes unnoticed,
you're not appreciated and
taken for granted?
You are never forgiven, respected
You are merely the object of negative
attention, put downs, reminded of
your failures and shortcomings.
Never to be desired, pleasing, protected
Where do you go, when the gravel
beneath your feet begins to slip
and the pathway become cloudy,
foggy and gray.
What words can be said?
What actions can you take?
What sacrifice can you make?
When you're not good enough,
you always fall short and it seems
you'll never meet the expectations.
