No longer Daddy's little girl,
hidden by her parents' love:
exposed, raw to the critical world.
No longer number one,
maybe not even second,
She didn't win this time.
Ashamed, hurt, confused,
parents should've warned her,
that you can't always win.
Too late, she's gone
with the wind.
Her name no longer means anything,
just, the girl who fell like
everybody else.
Poor little girl.

The author's comments:
This piece is about failure,how I used to be top of my class in writing, with my parents feeding all of this attention to me. Then, I started submitting my work to the Internet, and I realize I'm not the best, and I wish my parents would've warned me.
