Good Enough [poem]

I listen to my parents
and try not to talk back.
That’s good enough for everyone else…
but why isn’t it good enough for me?
I attend my classes
and do my work on time.
That’s good enough for everyone else…
but why isn’t it good enough for me?
I don’t get in fights
and I don’t cause a scene.
That’s good enough for everyone else…
but why isn’t it good enough for me?
I put aside my dreams
and wait patiently for my day in the sun.
That’s good enough for everyone else…
but why isn’t it good enough for me?
What isn’t it good enough for me?
