You’ll never be good enough to beat that person in video games.
Nor that online player who claims they're the best.

You’ll never be good enough to earn that pay raise at work.
Nor become employee of the month.

You’ll never be good enough to be the strongest and smartest in class.
Nor get the best grades.

You’ll never be good enough to be a model.
Nor have the body you've always wanted.

You’ll never be good enough to walk away from that fight.
Nor be able to fight back.

You’ll never be good enough to hold back your emotions.
Nor always be the best friend.

You’ll never be good enough to always do the right thing.
Nor make the right choices.

You’ll never be good enough to make that person love you.
Nor always be loved.

You’ll never be good enough to make it somewhere.
Nor ever be noticed.

But you can damn well try.
And doesn't trying really count?

Even though you may not care, especially since i never communicate with you, don't stop posting things like this. These feelings are what i NEED to see and know are still out there, that i am not alone, that the world still has hope.

No! I do care, I love to hear your feedback.
Although my replys may be late (because I fail at life sometimes) it's amazing that people actually gain a response from my work. I LOVE HEARING WHAT YOU THINK! SO DON'T BE AFRAID TO SAY STUFF!
