You'll never understand

Poetry By: Olola

This is a poem based on a tough relationship between a Mother and Daughter, caused by a culture clash and misunderstaning and misinterpretation, from the daughter's point of view. This is inspired and based on my life experience.

You've got to understand that I'm only human.

I make mistakes because I'm only human.

I'm trying to do my best to satisfy�the people around me.

But it seems that the more�I try to make things better, the more my efforts make things worse.

But am I really in the wrong or do you just want to make me feel like a misfit?

An outcast.

But what if I didn't exist?

Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful for the life God has given me and only him can take it away.

I'm just contemplating, what if I didn't exist?

Would your life be any different from how it is now?

But if�I were to tell you this, you wouldn't understand.

You never understand.

You'll never understand.

We'll never understand each other.

Many people have the relationship that we have; mother and daughter.

I'm a teenager, I'm going through puberty, my body's changing.

After all, you should know.

Weren't you once one yourself?

But I mustn't forget, we are different.

We were brought up in two different places,

Two different countries,

Two different continents,

Two different cultures,

Two different worlds.

We are completely different, but I'm still your daughter.

Don't you think that I should be treated like your daughter,

Be loved like your daughter.

Your one and only daughter.

You treat others that are not your blood better than you treat me.

You had three kids, now you have two.

I'm tired of being the one who suffers the consequences of your problems.

I'm tired of knowing that some of the tears that I've shed are based around you.

If only we were seperated by the power of nature - sea and land.

You'll be happy, because supposedly I'm the one behind all your sadness.

So if I were to go,

I don't know when, where and how.

You would cry, meaningless tears and you'd never know the real reason why.�

Because, you wouldn't understand.

You never understand.

You'll never understand.

We'll never understand each other.
