"the feeling of not being good enough,
was wiped away with wood and nails.
yet, how come i still feel it,
feel like i always fail?
it shouldn't matter.
i've been told that many times.
but the truth is deep down hidden,
amonst these many lies.
i guess deep down i know the truth,
the truth in all these lies.
but somehow my thoughts stand no chance,
it's their word vs. mine.
and it seems they always win,
a predictable, constant strife.
fighting an endless battle,
fighting for my life.
