Never wanted to disappoint

Always did as I was told

Never contradicted

Never raised my voice

 

Got decent grades

Didn’t get into trouble

 

Tried my hardest and did my best

I was the perfect daughter

Yet I always disappointed

I was not enough

 

Everything changed

I changed

I realised I will never be enough

 

I never listen

I do as I please

 

Always contradict

Always shout

 

My grades are slipping

I’m always in trouble

 

I can’t be bothered any more

Now I’m falling to the floor

 

The pressure is getting to my head

The constant disappointment

The pulsing pain in the dark

 

Muted tears and silenced screams

Guilty conscience and phantom fears

Broken mirrors and snow scarlet scars

 

Now who’s the Perfect Daughter?

 

Not me, I'm the Fucking Perfect disappointment
