Poem: It’s not enough

Poem: It’s not enough

They tell you, “It’s not enough!”

But what do you tell yourself?

What matters is how you see it;

Not how they see themselves, 

For those whose dreams are shattered; 

Have a lot of advice to share,

But one basic question, why do they really care?

This world has many expectations; 

And a lot maybe too much to you, 

What matters is how you take it;

No matter what others say or do!

Many may have gotten to phases you wanted to,

Societal pressure then heavily weighs on you;

They’ll tell you it’s late, time’s running fast,

To hurry you to accomplish every expected task!

But what do you tell yourself;

When they tell you it’s not enough?

You must acknowledge your present victories,

Because you’ve learnt your way what’s tough,

And though the rest don’t see it,

It’ll never be enough!

As long as you’re doing your best even though it’s rough;

Through the insecurities of others, pass them by and laugh,

And just let them keep saying, “It’s not enough!

  1. First of all I want to say wonderful blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like
    to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you
    center yourself and clear your head
    before writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my
    mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?


  2. Have you ever considered creating
    an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have a blog centered on the same topics you discuss and would love
    to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers
    would enjoy your work.
    If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me an
