Never Enough

I struggled; I stressed; I longed to be just like you.
My desire was to be accepted and respected.
My ego yearned to rule the world.
Vanity consumed me with the longing to be the most beautiful.
My prayers were full of pleading for what seemed not me—coveting.
Adored; worshipped; admired; everything I see in you.
The idea of being feared and revered aroused me.
Never smart enough.
Never sexy enough.
Never tough enough.
Never good enough.
Never enough.
I want; I want; I want; all that is you and not me—envying.
Never enough…which is why I fail to see the greatness I am and have.
