Remember... that each child is a separate person. Yours forever, but never fully yours. She can never be all you wished or wanted or all you know she could be. But she will be a better human being if you can let her be herself. ~Stella Chess

I always get in trouble
For things I didn’t do.
I find I’m sinking deeper,
And splitting near in two.
I want to be the best kid,
Yet that would be untrue.
If I were to be better,
I’d find I must redo.
And every time I feel alone
You say that I withdrew-
But how could have I, I ask,
If my personality’s been slew?
So now I’m sinking deeper,
I’m feeling sad and blue.
My life has fallen all apart,
And I’m sure it’s cause of you.

Yeah, I know it's basically awful, but I don't write poems like ever. I just needed to get some frustration out in a way that was shorter and faster than writing a story. The first line popped into my head and I went with it. Sorry it sucks!!!
