to make you proud,
but nothing was
good enough.
It wasn’t possible.

  2. If you had stopped this piece at “but nothing was good enough”, that would have been fine and sad on its own. But “It wasn’t possible.” moves the piece into full “Oh my gosh ouch in the heart!” territory and completes it just right.
