I am inadequate.
(is that an SAT word?)
adj. lacking the quality or quantity required; insufficient for a purpose
In a world chock full of Merit Scholars, and teenage charity founders, and tech wizards,
I am a 17 year old girl with no driver’s license.
I still can't spell N̶e̶c̶c̶e̶s̶s̶a̶r̶y̶ necessary correctly.
I lack the quality required to go to a college my parents can brag about.
My talents are insufficient to propel me to super stardom
(even the local news would be a stretch)
Quite frankly my talents are insufficient to propel me past third place
Runner-up is my middle name
I am average.
I've yet to write a bestseller,
Yale and Harvard have yet to write.
Most schools are reach schools for me.
I am neither a piano prodigy, nor am I the number one point guard or pass rusher.
I have no sob story nor did I grow up on the mean streets of Chiraq or Detroit.
Sometimes I bore myself.
Occasionally my tweets are funny
I am consistently above mediocre but below exceptional.
I am me.
Unfortunately that isn't quite enough for anyone--
