You see

I agree

But then, there’s you

And then there’s me

 

But you think

I’d care

That you’d always

Been there

 

You’re on the clock

Tick tock

Your job was my underwear

All the way to the socks

 

You’re happy?

I didn’t see that

Last thing I remember

Is you being mad

 

Seems everything I did

Didn’t fit your request

You shot me down

Then wanted me to be the best

 

I was scared

When I left you

Then I discovered

The world without you

 

It’s unkind, unable

To see me the way you did

I’m not sorry for a lot of things

But I am sorry you see me as only your kid
