Is it enough?

Am I enough?

Will things even end alright?

Still going insane

Got to stifle this pain

So I’m losing sleep each night

I’m tossing

I’m turning

Still learning

Can’t find any peace of mind in a life like mine

Eyes open

Eyes closed

Who knows?

I’m

Not

Okay.

But since you’ve asked, I’m fine.


Can you help me figure out what this static’s all about?

I’m so stricken with self-doubt

Sometimes I want to give up, rip my wires out

I’m so exhausted by the truth that I’m conditioned to the lies

I feed you programmed hellos to mask my tearful goodbyes

It’s like hide and go seek, but I’m the one to hide

But then nobody seeks me; that is why I cry


It’s never paid to get my hopes up; so I’m bankrupt

Not in mint condition; I’m a classic, but I’m banged up

Everything I do, I swear I do my very best

But I’m only human.

There’s no ‘S’ etched on my chest

I’m no superhero, I’m not special

Yes, I know this

All I’ve got to give is talent

I just wish one soul would notice


It hurts to think you have something worth sharing with the world

Then find out you’re not good enough, just not that kind of girl

The kind of girl who’s popular, the kind of girl that’s hot

The kind of girl I should be, but apparently, am not.

Yet I keep on going, trying to force the hands of fate

I’m just trying to finally “make it”, have more food upon my plate


Just trying to dodge a bitter past, to make my future sweet

Just trying to make those who’ve hurt me eat their words, admit defeat

Just trying to show myself I’m worth my weight in gold

Just trying to be happy ‘fore I’m jaded, tired and old


But is it enough?

Am I enough?

Will I ever be alright?

Still going insane

Got to swallow this pain

So I’m losing sleep each night

I’m tossing

I’m turning

Still learning

Need to find some peace of mind in a life like mine

Eyes open

Eyes closed

Who knows?

I’m

Not

Okay.

But since you’ve asked, I’m fine.
