Can I ever be enough?
If I got scars that I can’t show
I’ve been broken, I’ve been shoved.
I’ve been pushed into the darkness,
And I’ve been screaming through the madness.
I’m tired of lying to myself
Like a doll, sitting still on a shelf
With a smile on her face,
so unaware of the pain.
So can I ever be enough?
If I’m a million pieces that once were one,
If I’m a shadow that once was light.
Yes, I’m so rusted, but I once shined.
I can’t let them love me
If I don’t even love myself,
This story I know all too well,
The one where I try to be anybody else.
A thousand words left unspoken,
Lights on, I’ve been awoken,
And I’m still learning
To love while broken.
I have to lose so that I can win,
I have to cry so that I can smile.
I have to break through the darkness
So that I can find my own happiness.
I have to pick myself up,
Not to be enough for you,
But so that I can be
More than enough for me.
