Am I not good enough?

Why am I NOT GOOD ENOUGH?
I am not good enough,
When I let society define who I should be.
I am not good enough,
If I can’t be myself.
I am not good enough,
If I do anything Just to get certain people to like me.
I’ve always been told that “I’m unpleasant”,
That “I’m too fat or too skinny”,
“Too tall or too short”,
That “I need to dress according to trends”,
And that “I need to be and act like that guy or that girl.”
But society is wrong!
From changing appearances to the way you act.
Don’t let society define who you should be.
You are beautiful,
You are strong
And most importantly you are
A unique human being,
You are more than GOOD enough!
