Silent Tears of Fear

Striving to be perfect but
I know I am not
It’s screamed at me every day
I’m not good enough or
I can do so much better
It’s not fair
You compare me to him while
I sit with tears streaming down my face
I’m sorry I’ve made you so angry
I swipe at my cheeks to remove the tears but
The yelling gets louder and that just makes the tears fall faster
It’s not fair
I haven’t done anything wrong
Not this time anyway
Why should I be the only one to suffer
Am I the bad kid
Aren’t there others who are worse
It’s not fair
