I don't understand why
Every guy is never good enough
Or why I like some guys and they think
I'm not good enough!
Why is it that someone or other is
Never good enough?
They think I'm too fat
Or too much of a handful
They think I come on too strong
I think they're not smart enough
Or not mature enough
Or I compare them to the perfect guy I thought I had
Why does this happen
Don't they know that love is not logical?
Why can't we just act on our desires
And give into the fire
Never good enough
You and me
We're never good enough
Maybe it's good
We'll never marry
We'll never divorce
But we'll never have kids either
Or someone to love us when we're old
Why can't you be a shoulder to cry on
Or someone to eat with, walk with, talk with
Why do you expect perfection?
Why do I expect high intelligence?
Will we ever find happiness?
Can we just love ourselves?
When can we give up the horrible dating?
And just enjoy one person?

That is the way of love. I think it is just with time that you find someone you really can get on with or find your soul mate. A most expressive and heartfelt poem.

This breaks my heart. So well put. So many lonely people missing connections because we all think we are not enough. I keep trying to remember. I am enough. And you are enough too. Don't settle for anyone who doesn't think you are enough.

Absolutely John we must have standards.
Three keys yes.
Thank you both for your comments!

I agree with Jodah, your questions are the ones that can run through our minds.
The "never good enough" culture is part of the perfection culture. Impossible!
I dont know the answer either.

You pose some good questions here, Blondey. Why can't we except people warts and all and not set our hopes too high? No one is perfect, but I guess we have to set some standards don't we? Good poem.
