Mary Sue, How I Hate Thee

***

Do you know I'm still focused
On those days when I was young?
...It's not okay. It's not okay at all.
And I'll admit:
So it happened, so I grew up.
But it's not gone; that's not enough.
Third grade.
How could I make this big mistake?
I was only eight!
I didn't understand.
You say I should have.
Well, I agree.
But was it worth it to break me?
Oh, was it worth it to break me...

Drown it down, I'm older now.
I promise I did not improve.
I'm going down, I'm older now.
And I blame it all on you.

Why did you have to break me?
Was I really that bad?
Did you try to fix me? No.
But I say you should have.
You should have known...
I was too young to understand.
I wasn't ready for...
Corruption.
But I did see through it.
I could smell conspiracy.
Hypocrisy.
All the evil things they did.
How could you punish me
For looking straight through it?
Did I fail your plan?
Too bad; I hate them now.
But you didn't have to break me...
Break me down.

Drown it down, I'm older now.
I promise I did not improve.
I'm going down, I'm older now.
And I blame it all on you.

Drown it down, I'm older now.
I promise I did not improve.
You're going down, I'm older now.
And I blame it all on you.
