Good Enough

Why on earth do we treat ourselves badly

We wouldn’t others, but us, yes, sadly

We criticise and feel we’ve failed

When really all we’ve done is sailed

Out on a path which is our own

And done our best with task unknown

We’re here to learn not be the best

And yet we constantly fail the test

But only in our own perception

Others see complete perfection

But it’s not enough for us, not us

We worry and cringe and make a fuss

If only we could have self belief

And do our best with such relief

We need to see what others see

And live with joy and simply be

Why on earth do we treat ourselves badly

We wouldn’t others, but us, yes, sadly

We criticise and feel we’ve failed

When really all we’ve done is hailed
