Never Satisfied - Poem by Scarlet .....

I am who I am
I will be who I will be
and it is all up to me
I will no longer
pretend to be someone
that suits you
for I could care less if you like me
for you have hurt me to much
for me to care what you think
I tried to be the number on daughter
but hell I was never good enough
and never will be
for you can never be satisfied
so why should i continue to try
I worked so hard to be the smart one
but a 95% average wasn’t good enough
for you to notice
I tried being the mature one
like you ever cared
I tried being the one that helps out at home
and all you did was complain I didn’t do enough
so screw it
I’m through trying to please the un-pleaseable
I will no longer do things for your approval
I will do things for me
and me alone
you are suppose to lead by example
so i will do what you do
i will put myself first
maybe that way
i will be able to survive
