Demands

That put you inside

The pressure cooker

Insisting you survive

 

Who told you so

That you must be perfect

When you barely pass

Those freaking tests

 

Nobody pushes you

On the verge of death

But yourself

Resistance of judgments

 

Why won’t you accept

If criticisms are constructive

Don’t you even dare

To escape so frantic

 

Like now

You’ve been typing

These words in

Five minutes

 

As the fingers

In your hand

Sway in the air

Bid good bye

 

Next is steadily

Unwavering

Promising shadows

That you wouldn’t break

 

Yeah, you couldn’t break

Records of notable

Dilemmas and sparks

You must not break down

 

Look up

To the sky

And never ever attempt

To close your eyes

 

From this world

All you have is you

All they have is you

You decide

 

Whether to sleep

Or stay awake

The reality is out there

Waiting to be lived

 

Dreams are chances

For you to imagine

The days you weren’t able

To reach out

 

Now is the time

To start over and stand up

Words spoken are more

Heartfelt when done
