    Too Good to

    As a child
    Everyone told you have got to be Good,
    I Tried, I wasnt that good though
    I aspired,
    Aspired to become Good
    I did everything to be Good,0l
    Worked hard to be good
    Listened to all my teachers
    Did all my assignments
    Worked hard in class
    I Wasn't good enough.
    I tried did whatever it took.
    I got bigger and better at things.
    Better than the good.
    Suddenly
    No one liked me anymore.
    Some did admire though,
    But not so much,

    I Tried to be liked.
    I was utterly confused,
    Being good made me likable,
    BUT!!
    Why does no one like me to a desirable extent?
    Wasn't my efforts from childhood enough.

    For I got told that I had become too Good
    People liked the Good
    But no One liked too Good.
    Therefore I wonder
    Why did no one stop me before I was too Good.
    Too Good to Love.

    They said,
    You are so lovable,
    They said,
    You are so good at your work,
    You sould get a good job.
    They said,
    You are so beautiful,
    You should get a good Guy,
    You are so adjustable,
    You deserve the best
    They said,
    You are such a wonderful being,
    You deserve happiness.
    They said.
    They said so much
    In the sea of Shoulds and Woulds and Deserves
    I fare my way.
    Crashing in the waves of
    Uncertainty, apathy, discord, loneliness..
    I want to figure out my solitude.
    For the role performance is paramount
    And your mere existence means nothing.


    Your likability does not guarantee you a placement.

    There are so many reasons
    to Abandon
    you
    no matter what you deserve.
