I know I am not the daughter you wanted
But at least you got it right the second time
My little sister found her place in your hearts
But I feel I have never really found mine

Why would you care to listen to your first born?
When you have a fresh blank canvas to create
All of those things that you wish I could have been
Had I not developed such negative traits

But those negative traits make me who I am
And shouldn't you love me without condition?
See my stubbornness as being strong minded
And when I talk, don’t interrupt just listen

I know I am not the daughter you wanted
I scowl but I still need your loving embrace
Though you barely acknowledge my existence
Apart from to tell me what I've done wrong today

But why would you ever want to talk to me
When an argument is never far away?
It’s the tone of your voice that hurts me the most
Rather than the words that you choose to say

To think I was once a baby in your arms
With such innocent eyes I could do no wrong
In many ways I am still that simple girl
But that simple life has now long since gone

My heart goes out to you; I know exactly what that's like, and how hard it is. You perfectly expressed what it is like and your words have a meaning that goes far beneath the surface. Keep writing and never give up.
Thanks for posting,
Ava
