"You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams."

I don't know what I did so bad,
I don't know why everything I do makes you so mad.
I try my best to make you so proud,
But everything I do makes you yell so loud.

I know I'm different and not like the rest,
I know it's not me who you like best.
I hope someday soon you can see,
That no matter what I just try to be me.

I'm not exactly the way you want me to be,
I'm an unfinished outline not knowing what to be.
If I could be better I probably would,
But all in all I did the best that I could.

The author's comments:
Sometimes teens try to make their parents proud but in their eyes no matter what they do they just can't seem to accomplish anything that makes their parent happy. Sometimes it seems that no matter what they do it can never make thier parent happy especially when their the oldest or younget child in the family.

My scars don't lead me in the path that I'm headed, they simply remind me of where I've been.

This is an amazing poem and I can relate 100%
