Favorite Quote:
“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.” ― Dr. Seuss

That's what they wanted.
The perfect daughter.
Beautiful, with no flaws.

A beautiful child.
Who could steal the hearts of many,
With just one look.
A beautiful daughter.

An intelligent child.
Top of the class,
The star pupil.
An intelligent daughter.

An innocent child.
One that darkness,
Could never corrupt.
An innocent daughter.

All they wanted,
Was a perfect child.
To be the envy of many.
Was that too much to ask for?

That's what they received.
An imperfect daughter.
Average, with many flaws.

An average child.
A plain face,
Just like all the rest.
An average daughter.

A normal child.
One who passed the class,
But was never the top.
A normal daughter.

A dark child.
One who was sarcastic,
And corrupted.
A dark daughter.

All they wanted,
Was the perfect daughter.
But that was too hard to ask for,
Because no one,
Is perfect.

This came to me when I realized all my life, I was expected to be the perfect child, in everything. But no one can be perfect
