I Try

by: Jalia Williams

I try to make you proud
but it never works.

I try to do the best I can
but it is never enough.

I try to be more confident
but I’m always brought down.

I try to make you smile
but you end up with a frown.

I try to tell her to believe in me
but, I always let you down.

I try to understand
but, I’m afraid to raise my hand.

I try and I try over and over
but, it is never enough.

But in the end, I’ll keep trying until I had enough.
