English Teacher, Freshman Academy

& Pure Imagination Mentor
To get it right every time
That is a secret downfall of mine.
Never fail, I tell myself,
They've all put you high on that shelf.
A charmed life, they say,
To be so lucky everyday.
But this charm is a curse,
And each day I fear the worst,
That I will never be good enough for you.
The struggle is real
As I try to deal with all that is thrown my way.
I say yes without knowing, but inside I'm growing
Weaker day by day.
I'm losing myself in all that I do
When I give my all trying to please you.
To make you happy is my quest
And I push my limits to the test.
I put myself aside
Trying to prove how hard I've tried.
I never say no,
Because that'll show,
That I want to be good enough for you.
