The Fight To Be Like You
It’s here today

I cannot win

I want to leave

Go far away

So sick of the yelling!

So sick of my “mistakes”

I cannot compare

To your sweet perfect self

I am not you

I cannot be

You listened

You obeyed

I somewhat listen

Yet I cannot fully obey

I am myself

I am not like you

I don’t want to be

I fall and fall

You stand and stand

You compare and compare

Wanting me to be like you



Mistakes undamaging…
