Was I too little, too less

Left to be forgotten at the next

First born, third place

In my mother's eyes a big disgrace

Not as good she was

Not as smart as him

Girl banished to the shadow

Sent to be below

With too much insecurity within

Not as pretty as her

Not as charming as him

Plain and not girly, invisible

No eyes watch me

Free to be free

Not as perfect as her

Not as perfect as him

Nothing compared to any of them

So watch me fade away

To a newer day

Much more witty than her

Much more independent than him

Someday they'll wish they let me in

To their hearts and to their minds

But I am the girl they left behind
