Two Daughters, One Mother, So Many Wrongs

Nobody talks to me at school.
Well, let’s throw you a party and get you some friends.

Nobody talks to me at school.
Well, always carry a book or a journal with you so you’re never really alone.

One is too popular.
One is a loner.

One does well in school.
One continues to struggle.

One reads.
One writes.

One thinks she’s too pretty.
One thinks she’s not pretty enough.

One speaks her mind.
One let’s others walk all over her.

One texts.
One colors.

One is outgoing and competitive.
One is reserved and does not participate.

One has all of the attention.
One yearns for attention.

One is a leader.
One is a follower.

One is so self-absorbed.
One is so selfless.

One talks too much.
One doesn’t really talk at all. Not anymore.

One looks in the mirror.
One combs her hair in the dark.

One acts five years older.
One acts five years younger.

One has self-esteem issues.
One has self-esteem issues.

One is funny.
One is funny.

One is smart.
One is smart.

One is me at that age.
One is me at that age.

One grows up to be her mother.
One grows up to be herself.

They both need to be saved.

But there is only One of me.
There is only One right answer.

Nobody talks to me at school.
Well, let’s throw you a party and get you some friends.

Nobody talks to me at school.
Well, always carry a book or a journal with you so you’re never really alone.

Which One?

What if I’m Wrong?
