good enough

I gave you all of me but it still wasn’t enough to make too happy. I never measured up. 

I gave you everything. I crossed oceans and fought wars, yet never came close. 

I just want you to look at me, and see that I was good enough.

I kept trying to make you smile. Ended up in tears and fights.  

I kept trying. You kept making me jump through hoops. 

I tried to show you I was strong, why did I even bother?

I tried to show you that I changed. I tried to show you I was smart enough. I tried to show you that I cared so much. Kept trying. 

I dreamt of the day you would realise that I was enough. That you would welcome me with open arms. Accept me as I am. 

I still remember the day I gave up. Yet you still made me be the one to walk away. Made me take the blame. 

Time passed. I’m still here. Waiting for your approval. For you to acknowledge how far I come.
