Am I Good Enough? - Poem by Chanel Jackson

Am I good enough?
It’s a question we all ask.
It echoes persistently in our ears,
As we wonder in fear
What is the answer?
Countless times of failure,
Rejection
And you wonder,
But you try to suppress it
Not wanting to be subjected
By the ugly question,
But it creeps up on you,
Like a snake
Wrapping itself around you,
Squeezing the assurance within
Until you can no longer go through life
Without that single question in your mind
Am I good enough?
