Never gonna be enoughby xaverri
It's never gonna be enough,
I do my best, they just laugh
They're always on my back
No matter what, I always lack
They say I'm smart, they say I'm bright
Then I fail and they start a huge fight
Can't ever let it go if I get it wrong,
They want me perfect, want me just right
This is my life, I'll do what I like
Come the day that I've had it all
My bag'll go flying, out the door
And me out the window of the seventh floor.

Perfect. It speaks about what people are to afraid to talk about.

This is a great poem, and I like the whole idea of it.

Very well written poem, nice job. I hate trying to live up to others' standards instead of just making my own. People get so irritating sometimes. As you say, "I'll do what I like."
