A poem about unfair expectations on the young.

Just what exactly do you expect from me?
To complete the failures of your destiny
You mapped out my life before I could walk
Taught me to scream before I could talk
My shoulders they carry the burden of hope
I want to fly free, not be shackled by rope

I must do this; I must be a straight A
How about me just doing my best, is that ok?
All of this pressure I need to let of some steam
Don’t strangle my mind before it can dream
Sometimes I maybe that little grey cloud
Yet I’ll always try hardest in making you proud

Not all can be the brightest star in the sky
Yet I am eternal light, because I do try
I walk down life’s path, destination unknown
I don’t need any hurdles until I have grown
Just be my side and support me with love
Be the sun in my life, not the rain from above

I cannot be who you want me to be
I need to find who I am, that much I see
This is my generation, we are who we are
Not bounded by past, or predicted afar
So I give you my word, I will make life my own
Once the roots of my life are finally sewn

We love what we love. It's one of the great truths of life.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 3/26/2012
Just as the elderly are a source of great wisdom, youth provide us with the fearless plunge into the unknown future. I see so many parents who think they can control the outcome their children will be. It is sad. My parents but no shackles on me, and I exceeded even my own expectations and my father died, very proud of me. Thanks for pointing this out to so many parents out there who think they can mold their child's destiny.
