Am I not pretty enough?

Published on February 05, 2009

I heard the song “Not Pretty Enough” this morning on the Morning Rush. And I just fell in love with it. I know a lot of girls can relate to this song. Not once in my life have I experienced asking myself why I couldn’t have a love I have been longing for. I know that just like me, other girls have also asked stupid questions to themselves. Most common of which is “Am I not pretty enough?”



"Not Pretty Enough"

Am I not pretty enough
Is my heart too broken
Do I cry too much
Am I too outspoken

Don't I make you laugh
Should I try it harder
Why do you see right through me

I live, I breathe, I let it rain on me
I sleep, I wake, I try hard not to break
I crave, I love, I've waited long enough
I try as hard as I can

I laugh, I feel, I make believe it's real
I fall, I freeze, I pray down on my knees
I hope, I stand, I take it like a man
I try as hard as I can

Why do you see
Why do you see
Why do you see right through me

Just when you thought that you have given everything for someone, you still feel that it is just not enough. And instead of letting go, you try harder. And you give more. This song is very comforting for those who are enduring the pain of unrequited love. And for those who have already passed that stage. It’s just so liberating to get out of that kind of situation, just be able to look back and now feel the love that you deserve. I am so lucky to have someone who never made me ask myself again “Am I not pretty enough?”
