A Daughter's Tears

I can't take all this pressure

You've given me too much responsibility

Please, stop yelling at me

Please, I'm only a baby

You know I didn't mean what I said

I never really do, that's how I earn mistrust

I know you don't really believe me

I try to tell the truth

But I've told too many lies

I'm no angel and I don't really belong here

I'm sorry, Mommy, I really am

I'll try harder next time, I promise

But just this once, please

Just let me get away with being bad
