Approval: Story of Me



I've been through hell and back trying to better myself,

And to watch you point everything wrong and compare me to someone else,

To say that I'm wrong, and it's always my fault even if I do blame myself,

Even if I said I'm sorry, even if I don't know how you feel,

Just know that you don't know how I feel so don't assume that I don't care,

I understand that I cause you guys to stress and break into tears,

I understand I'm not your perfect son or anything close to that image,

Just know that through this situation you're not the only who was damaged.

You don't know how it feels to look at you and see the disappointment in your eyes,

Or to know that your not perfect and if it's better to end it by committing suicide.

You're approval is all I need, and for you to see the best I can be.
