You look at me with a blank expression,

Those eyes swell with disapointment,

Your pretty face contorts with contempt.

Thoughts are swirling and racing round my heavy head.

Am I wrong? Am I angry? Am I who I think I Am?

I settled upon, I'm not who they want me to be.

I try,try and try again, I tried back then.

I hand them the envelope while I make their supper,

Sadly its not their last.

My eyes and face could not swell or contort.

I kick, I scream! The man in the mirror whispers,

I told you so... As they say, you could do so much better.
