Why do you frown upon my achievements 
Why is nothing ever good enough for you
Why is it when I try ,I always seem to fail
I am scared of disappointing you
Why must you not see
That am trying my best
But I never seem to succeed 
You never say that I have done well
I am crying out for your approval
Please tell me why must you never show
Show that you think I am something other than worthless

This is part one of the poem, this is the child's thoughts.
