(2010) The Black Sheep - Poem by Deana Rode

I shouldn't care that I'm a failure in the eyes of pretty much my entire family.

I shouldn't care that I am not good enough.

I shouldn't care that everything I wished for in life is nothing I will have.

I shouldn't care that I will always not be good enough.

I shouldn't care that I am but a burden in the eyes of my parents.

I shouldn't care that that I've never been good enough.

I shouldn't care that I have forever been not enough.

I shouldn't care that I am the Black Sheep.



And yet, I do.
