"i'm proud of you." are words my parents never fail to say to me and i know there are some people who never get to hear those words.

This was what you always wanted,

a child you could be proud of.

so i worked hard enough,

waiting for you to notice,

waiting for you to see me,

treasure me,

be proud of me.

several nights i cried,

several mornings i tried to smile.

daddy see me, see what i have done,

see what i have achieved.

you are blind to me and it hurts.

as i lay down to sleep,

i pray that one day i would hear these words from you lips,

'i'm proud of you'

even just once
