Sorry I'M Not Good Enough

Rating: 4.5

Dear daddy, I want to say sorry
For I have disappointed you.
I'll never be able to reach your goals,
No matter what I do.
I thought I could count on you,
To help me stand up strong,
But your just punishing me,
For all that I do wrong.
I'm sorry I'm not like Chelsea,
With straight A's all the way.
I'm sorry I screw up,
At least once everyday.
I'm sorry I disappoint you.
I'm sorry your not proud.
I'm sorry that I'm late to class,
And sometimes are very loud.
I'm sorry for being me,
Which isn't good enough.
I'm sorry I can't pull myself through,
When things tend to get rough.
I'm sorry that I'm worthless,
And not smart enough for you.
I'm sorry you don't like my friends,
Or the things I like to do.
I wish I could be the daughter,
You strongly wish I was.
But no matter how you treat me,
I'll love you just because.
I started this poem saying sorry,
And I'll end with it too.
I'm sorry I can't be,
Good enough for you.

this i can relate to, being the black sheep of the family as a child have never been accepted but hey its alright, don't try to please anybody accept yourself, be happy with who you are without needing the accept of others even if it is your father. don't apologize just be you be who you want to be the moment you are comfortable happy with what you see in the mirror everybody else will see it to, but yeh talk to your dad and let him know how you feel but don't apologize for who you are.
