You Never Were

You never were quite sweet enough
Or nice enough
Never pleasant enough
Or pretty enough
Never had enough confidence
Or popularity.

In hateful times
You were never quite mean enough
Or rude enough
Never able to dish out the dirt enough
Never vile enough
Unkind words never left your mouth
Where they weren't needed.

You were never quite,
What they wanted you to be.
How about who you want to be

You always were.
