When a father doesn't appreciate the success of his daughter; she fills neglected but then tells her self then she can be better than he sees her to be.

You’re  Wrong…


As you pluck my petals,

One after the other

I wilt over, dreading your harm

Dying as I cook in the sun


When you pinch me,

With your pathetic lines of poor sympathy

You think you’re always doing your duties


You’re wrong,

Even though you say otherwise

Why do you punish me with such neglect?

All I did was try my best in life


Tell me, “You’re incapable”

“You can’t pass this”

“I can’t speak my mind”


Negativity becomes my weakness,

When you push positivity to the dirt

How will you ever see the truth,

Which is blinding you?


You’re wrong, about almost everything

You say, “ you can’t do it, you’ll just let others take over…”


Crawling to the top,

Not as a baby you see me as

Proving you that you’re wrong,

As I play this game my way


Pushing myself to prove I can do anything,

Getting support from left to right


You’re wrong…
