I Give Up - Poem by Chandra Hohmann

I give up
If I try and please you I never measure up
If I try and fight you I can never win.
I give up
I can't take it anymore
Is that what you want to hear Dad?
You glad you finally won?
Don't deny it.
If I can't do what you want
You don't want me to do anything
I think I'm going crazy
And I can't do this anymore.
I'll never be good enough for you
No matter how far I go
So whats the point
It's not worth it
You lost me long ago.
I've been lying to myself
But no more
I'm done.
