Born into deceivingly simple world,

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.
