I can't stand you're constant nagging
as if nothing I do can ever be right
Can't you see how hard I'm trying?
all I ever want to do is please you
but it seems so impossible
as if the only feelings you have towards me
are disapproval or disappointment
and you treat me like I deserve it

Maybe I do deserve it
I am by no means perfect
but who is?
Other than you of course
You've informed me many times
of your perfection
and how you acted at my age

Can't you see, I am not you
I've tried so hard for so long
to mimic you in everyway
to be everything you wanted me to be
ignoring all my own desires
because maybe just maybe
then you'd love me
