Sometimes, going to an Arts Magnet can really eat away at your self-esteem
And I end up hating how I am constantly being surrounded by so much talent.
Because I end up feeling inferior...
I write something with the knowledge that Maddie could have worded such-and-such much better.
I sing something knowing I could be outsung in a heartbeat by the kid who sits next to me in APUSH.
I sew something knowing that both Andi and Lakyn would subconsciously view it with slight distaste at my lack of skill.
I play something knowing Davis could kick my butt at it.
I memorize a monologue knowing that John could own me.
I dance knowing that Zaikyyah could perform with much more grace.
I photograph something knowing Zark or Hiratai could have figured out a much better angle to set off the setting sun.
But I'll keep trying...practicing...attempting
It just sucks. I feel inferior.
