Your Expectations
This burden you place on my shoulders,
It's so heavy,
And it's weighing me down;
As I stumble alone through this desert
All alone.
I'm so thirsty,
My throat dry,
My lips cracked,
And the illusion of water
Always three steps ahead.
I'm falling
Off the precarious edge
That I've been standing on.
To the jaws,
And the rocks,
And the sea below.
And the pain of my landing never comes
As I slowly find my wings,
And fly away.
