it's a wonder that I still have energy
for so long I have been squeezing myself
just a little too tight
to try and fit into the mold I was not born for.
maybe that is why I see so much burnout
all around me
kids are falling prey to these lies in guidelines
and before you know it
they are apathetic adults just trying to survive.
for all I know I'm on my way
and soon enough
I will be just like those kids who were pushed
just a little too hard
and wound up becoming the monsters they once ran from,
crammed into molds built for someone else.
