I Don't Understand


I don't understand
Why you lift your voice or raise your hand
I'm trying to please you
With the things I do
But nothing I do seems to be good enough for you
I sometimes cry at night, it's true
Because I know it would hurt you to see me cry
But then again you seem to be blind to how hard I try
You say that I'm not trying hard enough to be part of our family
That my very best is just done crumily
I don't mean to disapoint you
I don't mean to make you sad by the things I do
When all I want is to make you smile
For you to say you're proud of me every once in awhile
But I guess my best isn't enough
Guess I'm going to have to try different stuff
Try to do diferent things
Try to stretch my unused wings
Someday I want to make you proud
And to not do things that will cause you to yell at me so loud

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
