If you live up to their expectations
will it make you happy?
If you find your hopes and dreams
will it make them happy?
Are they your dreams, or their hopes?
Lost between obligation and aspiration,
adapting to each situation
diluting your intentions with others ambitions;
a marionette operating under societal instruction.
A tug on the strings pulls on your heart.
Stepping away against your will…
Acceptance versus desire,
Which will you follow?
With which do you lead?
