ENOUGH(?)

I am a slave to the number
that makes me feel number

day after day I keep running
all I get in return is a heart drumming

sweat pours out of every gland
when I just wanted to feel a little glad

You are the elusive dream
that makes me wanna scream

I want to make you proud
but what if I let you down?

is that even allowed?

I'll just say it, I'm proud of this poem. It took me a few tries to get right, there were many times when I felt like giving up. But I'm glad I stuck through it. I've been struggling with not feeling like I'm enough, specifically with school. However, I recently came to the realization that my self-worth is not linked with my school grades. But that was not before driving myself into a hole of burnout and tears. Anyways, I am currently working on myself and I'll be okay.
I tried to keep an AA, BB, CC rhyme scheme with the poem, which I think helped with keeping the poem upbeat.
I don't know if anyone will read this, but I hope you enjoyed my poem!

Tears Pounding
a hurting heart
welling up
Tears pounding

burden released
a relief
Rain pounding

hold me
hold me close
when I cry
cry with me.

dance with me
when I laugh
laugh with me.

sit with me
when I'm thoughtfull
think with me

Maybe I'm selfish
or maybe I'm lonely
but it don't really matter
when your with me.

A Knit Wool Sweater

You are my sunshine,
when you step in to the room
your presence radiates off the walls

When people look at you
smiles helplessly abound
your joy seems to be contagious.

Your cozy personality
reminds me of bees
and sweet smelling flowers

You are my sunflower
but really
you are my knit wool sweater.

Birds Chirping

The birds are chirping,
in the wind swept trees,
who faintly scent the breeze
with cedar, red-wood and pine.

The glistening ocean
washes up on the beach,
lulling me to sleep.
The frogs are chirping.

Seconds
Clock ticks,
seconds passing.

Fresh breeze flutters in,
cooling room.

Cat is snoring,
warming bed.

Friend is sketching,
deep in thought.

All is serene.
All is at peace.
