I must work harder

June 29, 2012

It seems to me I
In my glory and my pride
Hide the hurt inside

"What a nice daughter"
Words spoken to my mother
Shadowed by brothers

Friends drifting away
Though I beg with them to stay
Don't see them these days

Who can I tell now?
I work so hard, yet somehow
I must work harder

Thank you very much. It is nice to know that someone else has felt this way before. I wish you the best in your life as well, and hope that you continue to spread this message.

Please. No. If this is how you feel I understand. I know a taste of how you feel. No matter what you do or how you do it, you fall short or are not good enough. Please, for a stranger who has been there as well. No matter what, do not say you are not good enough. If you put what you can into what you do. That is enough. And that is all that matters. I wish you better hands in life.
