Dear Mom and Dad,
How are you?
Not good, I suppose, seeing how much of a failure I am.
I'm sorry I'm not the perfect child you two always wanted.
I'm sorry I don't have straight A's.
I'm sorry I don't try as hard as I should.
I want to change my ways, be the perfect child you wish for.
But I can't seem to change.
I want to change, I really do, but it's not working.
I know I'm a failure, and I hate myself for it.
You don't know, but I've hurt myself because of it.
I did it cause I'm ashamed at the kind of person I've become
You don't show it, but I know you're ashamed of me,
of what I've become.
So please wait for me, just have a little more hope.
I'll change, I swear on my life that I will change.
It won't happen right away, but it will happen.
So until then, please don't give up on me.
