Wrong again

Wrong again, oh Lily dear

Let’s hear another, loud and clear

She speaks again, this time unsure

Wrong again Lily, you silly girl

I’m always wrong, she thinks inside

Though she answers again, she is hurting inside

Wrong again child, the teacher scornfully says

Why can’t you ever get it right in your head?

Lily’s head drops, her eyes start to tear

I’m a failure, she mutters, thinking no one can hear

Yes you are right, her teacher cruelly replies

You can’t do anything right, and wipe those pathetic tears from your eyes.

Lily sits down, a broken look on her face

The joy that had been there was woefully replaced

By what exactly, it is hard to describe

Yet something became broken, deep down inside
