What do I have to do
To prove myself to you;
That I am twice as good
As the moron you make me out to be?
You know as well as I do,
That I deserved at least that much!
Not that you'd ever give me the time,
Not that I'd ever get the mention.
So my talent continues to be ignored,
By the eyes of the only one whose opinion matters.
And with every wasted breath,
My future becomes dimmer.
My chance to get out
Becomes entirely lost,
As I try, sigh
And eventually cry,
large heavy drops,
the product of my fears.
I mean, what do I need to do,
To prove myself to you?
I do what you want exactly.
Accurate within a degree of perfection;
But it isn't good enough.
What is good enough then?
Why can I not be better?
What is it that you want from me?
Because obviously I am at a loss!
Obviously I am wrong!
How is it that I put my heart and soul
My dedication, my passion...
And still I get nothing in return.
How is it that I get passed by
For every break,
For every opportunity,
Every advancement that I deserve?
How can you lead me to believe
That for once you see me?
Is it so that you can get more satisfaction
From showing me what you truly think,
After I believe your lies so blindly?
How can you possibly say
That you do not assign me a rating before even hearing me,
When what I say warrants more
Than what you would ever give me!
The little bit you never give me.
Just give me a chance,
And I swear I'll never let you down!
Just one small little chance,
For me to show you I have what it takes,
And can surpass your standards!
After everything I have done,
I think that I deserve that much;
To be granted an audience
To show you that I am good enough!
For me to prove myself to you.
Not that this even matters,
These petty little thoughts,
Because you'll never give me that chance,
To even try to prove you wrong.
