Never Good Enough

This poem seeks to define an individual within a relationship that feels they can’t measure up to the standards their partner has laid out for them to be. They feel lost within their relationship and unsure if things are really meant to be. This feeling of never being good enough comes from the things they hear from their partner, things they see on the television, things they read in books, the images and articles they read in magazines, the words defined in music as to what a relationship should be and many other things they encounter on a daily basis within society that tell them who they should be. This individual gets to the point where they are tired of being told who they should be within any relationship. It gets to the point where they question even why they are in the relationship and wonder if it will truly make them happy. They have so many insecurities but are strong and basically state to their partner enough is enough, I will never be good enough and they leave.

I knew this was too good to be true
I would never be good enough for you
The things that I say
The things that I do
I can never really relate to you

My words go in one ear & out the other
You’re starting to ignore me like you ignore your own mother

I don’t know what to say
I don’t know what to do
I truly don’t even know if I really love you

I will never be good enough for the standards you have made
I will never be able to exceed the expectations you have laid

I knew this was too good to be true
I would never be good enough for you
