It's something special;
Not everyone shows it.
"It must be stressful."
No, you get used to it after a bit.

It started in high school;
My handwriting had to be perfect.
"Sweetheart, patience is the right tool."
But what is patience without a little self-respect?

Clothing has to match.
Hair has to be flat.
"Darling, nails shouldn't scratch."
Try to explain that to a brat.

It's nothing special.
Everyone shows it.
"You are probably relaxed."
Yes, but I never got used to it.
