"Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” From: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

You tell me I'm useless
That I can't do a thing
You tell me I'm worthless
Who would want me anyway

You tell me all these things
and I hear you loud and clear
but there is just one problem
I do not care

I am good enough
to solve my problems
good enough
to make it right
good enough
to pick up the pieces
and put it back together this time

You made me believe
that I didn't have a chance
to find a place in this world
where i could fit in

You try to assume my value
but that's not your place or job
you tell me all these things
but you couldn't be more wrong

I am good enough
to fight my battles
good enough
I will defend myself
good enough
to fix all the things
that you have ruined

I am good enough
so don't try to hurt me
good enough
it's going to be alright
good enough
but you won't know
until I'm out of site

There are many cases in the world where people forget how much they really mater because of what people have told them, but what other people say does not mater. The only limit a person has is themselves.
