Expectations

I wonder

What you see in me

That makes you think I can do this

I tell you that I can’t

And all you do is push

 

I don’t know if I can continue

Everytime I try

All I hear

Are your words

Telling me not to fail

 

How much more

Do you think I can give

I am drowning

In your expectations

And my breath comes shorter with every wave

 

I think that if

I ever stop

And let go

I would be much happier

What else do you want from me?

I know why (you cry) ►

..." I am drowning

In your expectations...

What an expressive line of poetry, that tells us so much.

Well done you!

Po
