Never Enough

thats all I hear

a college acceptance letter

opened with tears

of sadness

for no feeling of acomplishment 

just complaints from the parents

but never a proud moment

for that would give a gold star

and those are nearly only at four 

and no more

don't seek the pride

for it causes heartbreak

and sheltered pain

a job overdone

but tears come

for the harsh words rain down

saying do it better and clean it up

but a thank you 

would be asking for too much

A's litter the report card 

with a 4.00 GPA

but a you should have a 4.5 GPA

tears are coming

becuase I tried

but it is Never Enough

to recieve the precious gold star

so every night in a hope I pray 

and I hear a calming voice

I don't hear the words

Never Enough

but I love you and you are worth everything

look up and know 

I love you


You Are Enough

I know a lot about wishing for a complimant form a parent and so I wrote this to say don't give up and know there is a loving person, or something that tells you, you are enough.
