You Never

You had this
Fixed view
Of who I was
But you never really knew.

You spent long hours
Talking about
My problems
But you never did anything to fix them.

You brought me up
The way you thought was right
The way you wanted to
But you never thought about the consequences.

You thought I was always the perfect child
Who did things right,
Not wrong
But you never knew the truth.

You tell me what I should do
Based on what you think I should do
What this "angel" should do
But you never,
Ever,
Truly understood,
Who I was.
