I'm only trying to be the best
I can
And it's never good enough
Subtle clues to obnoxious slaps in the face

I'm judged unfairly and yelled at for
the smallest thing
Even when I'm right,
it's wrong

Harsher punishment, higher standers
No reaction but this frozen smile
emotion repressed and crushed

And now you wonder
why I'd rather sit here in front
of the computer screen instead
"Family Bonding"

It's a riot, I swear

Avoiding mealtimes and trying not
to be noticed in this
Happy Family Scene

And every little thing is taken out on me
Emotional punching bag
Suffering beneath a plastic face
