They told her,
truth be told,
she’d never be good enough,
destined to be abandoned.

who they wanted her to be,
meant her best effort would always fail,
and failure was who she’d be.

Who would she have been,
if being her had ever been good enough?
Deciding it was time to find out,
she cast them off.
