I stay at home with nothing to do 
not able to set goals to make my dreams rise above 
if you must ask why  I can't do anything 
It's because my mom thinks its not worth it 
It's a waste for me to get college degrees   
She'd rather let me marry for money instead 
This makes me rather angry and frustrated 
I am her second daughter  that 's not supposed to be who she is 
To be a unique invividual is not allowed 
They expect me to be filling in the shoes of a family member 
who we don't know is long gone, or is still alive 
It's too much to be like that woman that I never took after
