If I learned anything from marketing, it's that images are fake,
images can be altered, they can even be bought,
So did I make a mistake?
or does society want me to think so?
Choosing this path meant walking through halls of laughter,
and hearing the echoing sounds of banter,
choosing this path meant getting your cape stepped on right when you were about to fly, and being pulled back to the ground, as far away as possible from the sky,
choosing this path mean being left behind, and being put in a box that no one can find,
Why can't society just be accepting and kind?
I'm not the perfect daughter,
I'm not the perfect sister,
I'm not the perfect student,
In fact, I'm not perfect at anything.
I'm the girl that disappointed her father,
I'm the girl that broke her mother's heart,
I'm the girl that's never going to get her happily ever after,
I'm the girl that's never going to be smart,
I just feel like I shouldn't have existed from the start.
Four years of hell learning about perception, communication, and people,
yet I feel the need to compare myself, I still never feel inferior,
Why does society get to pick who's superior?
I just wish people were equally appreciated,
No job is ever easy, no matter the field,
so what's up with all this hatred?
Society tells me I should be hitting a certain milestone at a certain age,
