Good Enough

I am GOOD ENOUGH
when the world attacks
to stand by your side

GOOD ENOUGH
to hear your fears
wipe your tears
mend your broken heart

GOOD ENOUGH
to calm your anxious fears
to hear your woes
absorb your pain

Your dreams
hopes and asperations
I rally to your cause
I'm GOOD ENOUGH then

Carnal nature's abound
release found
I'm GOOD ENOUGH

Quickly discarded
my fears
hopes
dreams
set aside

I am not your wife
your mother
your friend
I am your enabler

Screaming against the rage
pain
insecurity
I hold to the hope
once again I'll be GOOD ENOUGH

You watch as I flounder
this pool I created
years of tears
cried inside a broken heart

The salt burns my eyes
chokes my throat
reaching out to you
only to find I have been abondoned
once again
Never quite GOOD ENOUGH

I have no right to ask
your love
acceptance
belief in me
Never quite GOOD ENOUGH

Honestly Vickie and Jim this poem was not directed to either of you.

I love ya, Futs and I know what it is like to be unappreciated, but to everyone in your life YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH...It not your fault if others are blind to it. I am glad and feel proud of myself that I can see how special and good you really are!!

Hugs and Kisses,
Potty Poet

You Really Say Allot That Hits Home

ONE MINUTE WE ARE SO CONFIDENT IN OURSELVES AND OUR ABILITIES , the next thing we know , from out of no where we doubt everything about ourselves , even our right to be loved , appriciated and alive ! When someone believes in us , we have the strength to overcome anything - we can "FLY" ! But when those we love question and doubt us , we collapse from the inside out and just want to go away and hide . Our pain is soo intense , as is our joy and happiness , it's infectious !
Someone once told me to " Quit acking so 'Melodramatic' , and my reply was , " WHO'S ACTING !?" Emotions and our feelings never seem to run lukewarm , instead they run either 'burning hot ' or ' freezing cold ' . WE Adders are very intense people , aren't we ?

lost I pray you are feeling much better about yourself and are finding the love and support that you need right now. I've noticed that you haven't posted in awhile take the time to get to know some of the members...we have some of the most wonderful, supportive, caring people in the forums but like anyone else they need time to warm up to ya.

Hugs
