Are You Proud?
I'll never be the perfect girl,
Never be the one to get straight A's
Never the one to go and go until
I guess I should be sorry,
But I can't say that I am,
I'm doing my absolute best,
Why can't you see that?
I'm tired, my feet are dragging on the ground
I'm worn, too many... too many emotions, grades, words, thoughts, things to-do... too much... too much of you. I'm sorry, sorry I can't take all this, sorry I can't do fifty billion things like you did, sorry...
Sorry I'm not your perfect daughter. Can you say... just one time... Are you proud?
