I know how you feel...
too often, a wight is damaged
by the seemingly harsh "lies"
that arise from a bitter voice.
I do my best not to discourage.
I'm sorry if you're hurt,
battered by my criticism.
I don't want you to be
a narcissistic reproduction of me.
I have flaws, I have weaknesses.
My one and only wish
is to see you live a better life
than I did.
So despite the clicks of the tongue,
the endless reminders
and the way I push you forward,
dear child, please don't despise me.
Please take my words
as incentives to work your hardest.
There is no reason to hate.
There is no reason to misjudge.
I only mean to transform you
for the better.
