    The Words Hurt

    I never thought I would hear or be a disappointment to my dad. Every time he used the word it would anger me and it would sadden me down to very bone. I never did anything that would make my parents feel that way. I never got arrested, I never took drugs, I never drank or smoked...

    I Really Don't

    I always seem to be a great disappointment, whether to myself or to others. I don't know why, wish I did. I try so hard, but I know for certain that I disappoint many of the folk I have known.

    The Only One

    The only one you can truly be a disappointment to is yourself.  If you're not happy with yourself, etc.  The other people in your life, if they truly love you will forgive and support you.
