A poem for all of us who were raised in "THE LIE"

    Sometimes is never quite enough

    If you're flawless, then you'll win my love

    Don't forget to win first place

    Don't forget to keep that smile on your face

    Be a good boy

    Try a little harder

    You've got to measure up

    And make me prouder

    How long, before you screw it up?

    How many times do I have to tell you, to hurry up?

    With everything I do for you

    The least you can do is keep quiet

    Be a good girl

    You've gotta try a little harder

    That simply wasn't good enough

    To make us proud

    I'll live through you

    I'll make you what I never was

    If you're the best, then maybe so am I

    Compared to him compared to her

    I'm doing this for your own damn good

    You'll make up for what I blew

    What's the problem ... why are you crying

    Be a good boy

    Push a little farther now

    That wasn't fast enough

    To make us happy

    We'll love you just the way you are if you're perfect.

    Besides the dubs being like this...

    (Glad I'm out)

    I have a friend that is sorta like this. Pushy, should have, could have, do it this way blah....

    We don't get together much anymore unless it's a scheduled event with a good focus ..

    I just can't take the pushy-ness and sort of feeling railroaded.. It feels very unrelaxed when she gets like this.

    I never thought of it, but maybe she makes me feel like I'm back at the kingdom Hall or something like that. Yucky kind of feeling.

    It sure fits the dub mentality!
