It's just the way of it,
This is how my life is destined to go,
A restless soul and tender heart,
The emotions rock to and fro.

I never seem to fit in,
No matter how I try,
In every thing I do,
I'm left alone to cry.

I've looked for something I can't have,
Seems it's not meant for me,
To fit in anywhere,
And show them I'm the best I can be.

It's sad that I'm not good enough,
That so called friends they let me down,
As I set here the calm waters are stormy,
Perhaps I'm meant to drown?

It hurts that my good isn't good enough,
That people don't need me as I need them,
I fake it, pretend I',m tough,
And I have to until the end.

The storm clouds gather,
The wind it moans through the trees,
I pray that one day people will see,
The love, beauty and caring within me.

Thanks RainbowGirl, the caring is wonderful, but at this time I feel it's the strength I need to ignore those negative and fragile feelings.. Thanks for the lovely comment, I appreciate it much more than you realise....:..

Isis: We all fall into the trap of feeling negative at times, some show it, some don't, but we all go through it...if my caring helped, then that's one more reason to be positive...

What a profound way of writing you have, Isis. This poem is marked by your own love for people. It shows the whole picture as you see it, from a kindred soul.

Thank you.

WhtDove I wasn't referring to here, I was referring to my life in general,
and Artur how is my remedial writing profound? And Artur how are we kindred souls? For the feelings of inadequacy?

Let's see... *sits in a high chair, prepares to discuss the facts...* First, the profoundness... sounds like the whispering of a lost soul over the ocean. It feels like something is hopeless, beyond reach, the way you write it, but you have a yearning to discover (or possibly 're'discover) the strength within to love with your whole heart. You said,

"I never seem to fit in,
No matter how I try,
In every thing I do,
I'm left alone to cry"

and that is very passionate, as is the rest of the poem. Second, I meant you were the kindred soul, not we. You said,

"It hurts that my good isn't good enough,
That people don't need me as I need them," ...

... so what does that tell me? People can be so offending at times, and uncaring of others who need them. But you seem to have tried, and found that they act like they don't need you. In the first two lines of the first five stanzas (is that what it's called?), you are the loner, the one who doesn't fit in with the rest of the world. Perhaps you are unique, after all! Have you ever thought of it that way?

Finally, feelings of inadequacy is reflected off human nature. We'll always feel like things will be unfair, but there are some who will have more insight like you have displayed so well in this poem. I call this 'feeling of inadequacy' one word, despair. Even the mightiest of men have fell and wept in defeat before Despair (I use it in those poems I write similar to yours!). For the sword of desolation is long.

Maybe someday I can learn to summarize!
