They "know what its like."

They "understand my frustration."

And "just want what's best for me."

* * *

How many times have I heard this?

Yet I don't believe it.

I can't possibly believe it.

* * *

They rag on my for the little things,

When its not in my control.

"Why'd you let your sister do that?"

* * *

Then forget about the important ones,

When I rely on them for help.

"Oh, here's your ACT packet. Ready to go?"

* * *

How can they possibly know?

How can they possibly understand?

When I'm lost and its my own life.

* * *

I hate this box they've put me in.

They're not allowing me to get hurt,

And not allowing me to learn.

* * *

I'm sheltered and naive.

I don't know about the real world.

I'm ignorant because of their love.

* * *

Sure they want what's best for me.

Sure they want the perfect daughter.

But who says whats best or perfect?

* * *

I'm not like them, or anyone else.

I'm my own person with my own life.

Why can't they just let me live it?
