Approval

What could I have possibly

Done wrong?

Any amount of love from you

Is disappearing, almost gone

It seems to me that every little thing

Hits the wrong nerve

That they're  so fine, your heartstrings

And they're about to break

For nothing I do right,

Is congratulations ever given

I'm never going to be enough for you

No matter the effort I put in

You're supposed to teach

Supposed to give me strength

But, for your approval, I still reach

As unattainable as it may seem.

To say you love me

Sounds like a lie

Well Mommy, are you happy?

Now that you've made me cry?

The End
