Jay-Lee Jane

I am your daughter

Roses are red,

Yes this is true...

But I am your daughter, 

Not a second-class, toxic version of you.


Roses are red,

Oh, I am so blue,

Today I looked at my reflection,

But who stared back at me: was you.


Roses are red, 

Yes this is true,

I am your daughter,

And I am terrified to be anything like you.

      true artistic talent
      arrowed with purposed intent, to portray and share
      meaningful, impactful, sincere
      and Relatable message...
      Showcasing a true touch of class,
      I would be very proud if I could ever create something like this,
      I truly hope you're proud of yourself!
      thanks for sharing, dear Artist
