Measuring up

Written by: Jennifer Marie Oliver

Sometimes I feel
That no matter what 
I don't measure up.

There's just something inside me
A lack of trust,No one can see
I just don't measure up

It's hard not to try to compare
Being last in line,when others shine
I just feel I don't measure up.

I try so hard to try to be
More like them instead of me 
Instead, I don't measure up. 

Is this something in my head
Or a reality that is true.
Why I don't measure up.

I used to say I don't care
But deep down its always there
I feel I don't measure up

I wish I knew what I could do
To change how I feel 
So I could measure up.
