Behind My Skin

Mon, 09/30/2013 - 14:42 -- Jay_M

A wound that can't heal

A pain I always feel

Like the blood won't stop flowing

The chant keeps on going

Not good enough

Not good enough

Not good enough


It ebbs, slows, then swells

As my spirit it fells

Wearing, tearing, and gnawing

It just won't stop sawing

Not good enough

Not good enough

Not good enough


My soul full of holes

Not good enough

My mind full of "no's"

Not good enough

Not pretty enough, not smart enough, not skinny enough, not clever enough, not social enough, not helpful enough, not good enough, not enough, not enough, not, knot, naught, nothing, no one, naught, not, not, not, not, not not not notnotnotnotnotnotnotnot. No.
