Only Daughter

My problem stems from the fact that I’m my mother’s only daughter.
She always tells me that I’m an unlucky person and that I’ll always be without friends.

I have flaws like everyone else, but not to the extent of being this lonely.
I don’t deserve this heartbreak.
I deserve a shoulder to cry on.
I deserve to have someone listen to me.

I wish I had someone I could chat with over a cup of coffee.
I wish I’d stop feeling so lonely.

My sister makes fun of me and thinks my friends are “disgraceful.”
I laugh, but my story is not funny.
And I’m not funny like they say.

Can you please listen to me?
