I wonder if I am good enough
I wonder if I measure up
I wonder if I will ever be good enough
I wonder if I will ever measure up
I am straining under the pressure of performance
The spoken demands overwhelm me
The unspoken demands have me on tiptoes
The expectations are strangling
Life is wringing life out of my soul
Life is wringing life out of my body
Life is wringing life out my mind
Life is wringing life out of mind
It’s not that I don’t want to live
It’s that I am not sure how to live
It’s not that I do not enjoy life
It’s that I have no life to enjoy
So I wonder
Can I take a break?
Is there a pause button?
Can I skip this phase?
Is there a refresh button?
