I don’t understand how I cannot please you.
I do not know how to make you understand or even how to reply to you.
All eyes are on me. I don’t mind.
But what makes me bitter is that nothing makes me enough to be a human being.
Everything I do right, forgotten.
Everything I do wrong, written. On blank paper. So clear. Neatly handwritten.
I never imagined that the people who I thought loved me, could believe in me one second and rip my soul in another.
Life is truly temporary.
Now I know, I learned, that it is only I, that believed in me all along.
I trust no one but myself, now.
Thank you for teaching me that.
Because you will never expect that the people who helped you build your foundations are the same people who would break them.
Now, my dreams seem like ash from burnt wood, dust from smoke.
And I don’t blame you.
Because, I thought, who would want failure for a daughter.
