Long before when I was young
I grew up with a clear goal in mind.
But as I got older, that dream
Was brought down, leaving me hopeless.
"You aren't cut out for it," or
"It isn't the right choice," were heard
commonly in my past.
Affected by their words I
Hid my dreams... And who I was
As a person... As an individual.
In order to make them proud,
I changed my goal to
Fit their wishes, their aspirations
But... Was that truly what I wanted?
It left me empty.
