Pressure and expectation

So much pressure

And expectation,

So much judgement

And domestication,

Told to look good

And look certain ways,

Told to be rich and famous

Be part of the craze,

To seem beautiful as defined by the media

Not to clever, it’s not a prerequisite.

Is it any wonder why

Within our society,

Don’t always thrive

All this pressure

And expectations,

Makes them feel failures in a system

That only focuses on success,

As defined by the TV and the media press.

No wonder kids and people suffer damage

From poor mental health,

When they don’t achieve fame or success.
