Being told to follow your dreams.
Study hard; work hard, be somebody,
Life seems daunting before it begins.
Three jobs, two children, and a dream,
Passion fades where responsibilities lies,
So much is expected in so little time.
Needing a release, a crazy, at times.
Yet afraid to disappoint.
In this punishing, unforgiving world,
Expecting perfect every time.
Is this life?
An ambiguous mystery,
Or a straightforward production line.
Where once gone, the world moves on, and so, it repeats.
