I can never be the perfect daughter you want.

I can never have the perfect life.

I can never be anyone I'm not,

And I'm not who you want me to be.


I'm not the girl who lets others control her life, her thoughts

or who never stands up for what she believes.

I'm not the girl with the perfect friends

who lets you fix your life by reliving thought her.

I'm not the girl who needs no one.

or the girl who can live her life alone and without love


I'm not you.

I never want to be.

I'm not the perfect daughter,

And I never will be.
