Am I Enough?...

Am I enough?
Will I ever be enough?
These are the questions that I've been asking myself lately. . .
Will I ever be enough for a job position, a friendship, or a relationship?
Because I feel as no one hears me...
They hear me, but not the REAL me
I drown out the white noise, to find this little voice
It's screaming so loud, but it's only a whisper. . .
So I shut down, I don't say a word
I don't say what I feel or what I think
The smiles are my gates
To facade the hurt
My hurt
...I'm hurting. . .
But these cracks can't show
