To Be Not Good Enough Is Its Own Special Pain - Poem by Shalom Freedman

To be not good enough is its own special pain-
To try and try again
To force oneself -
To will and will and try and try,
And still
Not have been given the gift
One would have-
To be not good enough is its own special pain-
As I in these plain prosaic words
Try to write another poem.
