I'm sorry for not being good enough, Mom

That I can't be the daughter you want me to be

For trying my hardest and still falling short

of the plans you have made for me.

My room is never clean enough,

My grades will never please you,

You treat me like a broken thing

and honestly I'm through.

I'm done with all your put downs

And the hurtful things you say

I'm done with your anger and bitterness

that haunts me everyday.

You said "I'm sorry" and "I will change"

But I know it's all a lie.

It seems as though I'm all alone

The only one willing to try.

Well, guess what, Mom?

This time you went too far

I know that nothing can save what we had

Not even a wishing star.

So I hope you're happy

All by yourself in what used to be our home

Where you'll spend the rest of your broken life

Unwanted and alone.
