I Try Too Hard
Hannah, Age 15, St. Peters, MO

I try too hard to fit in
To fit into the cracks where I'll never be noticed

I try too hard to please
To please people that don't even know I exist

I try too hard to be perfect
To be perfect when I know I'll never be

I try too hard to be me
To be me when I don't even know who I am

I try too hard in vain
And it only brings me pain

I try too hard but eventually give in
When, if ever, will I finally win?
