Once again, the battle has begun.
Nothing I do seems to be quite enough to rate anything but constant criticism.
Her image of the person she wants me to be is nothing like the person I actually am,
Leaving both of us angry and confused.
She keeps pushing me to conform to her ways,
I keep trying to explain they are not for me,
And neither of us seems willing to compromise.
All I'm asking is the chance to live my own life--
the chance to prove my worth as a person--
Without being told I'm doing it wrong.
Is that too much to ask?
