Mother, father, can't you seeall


Mother, father, can't you see

all this pressure you've placed on me?

If I fail, you'll be so mad.

Am I the child you wish you'd never had?

My thoughts run wild when my mind starts to wander.

I feel like I'm drowning, slowly sinking under.

Nothing I do is ever right.

Inside my head is a constant fight.

You asked what makes me tick; well this is what I thought.

I bet you never guessed you would come across someone so distraught.
