I always questioned why you didn’t support me,
In any of my endeavours?
You were always selective
And I never met the grade.
I used to try so hard
To be a daughter
That you could be proud of,
That you could be proud to call your own.
But the strain of the lie was too much
I denied myself for you
And I couldn’t keep doing it,
I couldn’t maintain the pretence.
I gave up. I tried to change myself
I tried to unashamedly be the real me.
You recoiled in disgust,
When I held out my hand to you.
You couldn’t love me when I tried
To be who I thought you wanted
Me to be.
I was never that person.
I tried to be myself for you
That was never enough either
So why bother anymore?
Why bother with any of it?
You will never support or love me
I accept that I failed to be your Princess
I accept that I failed from my first breath.
This is the last goodbye
To the world
