Am I perfect now; is that what you think?

Every time you criticize my heart begins to sink.

I’ve lost a few pounds; can you not tell?

I cannot look like you; I know that well.

 

But I have tried to resemble your face,

Your pretty green eyes along with your grace.

I dye my hair blonde to look just like yours,

To be social like you when we are outdoors.

 

“You look just like her”, I love when I’m told,

To be compared to you is the joy that I hold.

You are so beautiful, I just don’t know how,

My dearest mother, am I perfect now?
