Societal pressures, due to societal efforts
I am giving and I don’t want to give in
Because I don’t know where that may lead
Will I be alive?
Or remain an outlier.
Life is not clear, or at least not at first.
You go through trials, tribulations and get hurt.
And then question why.
Why am I doing all of this?
Do I have to fit in?
If I’m not successful does that mean I have failed?
That’s all I ever do. But if I learn nothing else I guess I should learn the truth
About me and why I’m here.
My fears and this pressure keep holding me back.
If I’m not something by 25 is this life a waste?
Am I wasting time?
Should I do more?
I feel like I’m losing time.
And if I’m not fulfilling my dreams by 30 I’ve committed a crime that I cannot come back from.
Societal pressures this life keeps giving me
Societal pressures I just want to be free.
