there was once a handsome youngster
who felt the crush of her expectations
seemed at peace, but no-one asked her
she felt the lure of the stars above her
but its not the gravity she can’t escape
but something that cannot be mastered. .

the result of a perfect union
the boy was held up for inspection
and basked in blessings from the get go
but his soul was left un-nurtured
void of something he had to work for
poisoned by his precious pedestal…

is it possible to think and function?
while exhibiting inherited traits
it makes no sense to halt production.
but if conformity can bring no comfort
it needs addressing and it’s no mistake, those
un-walked paths can be so beautiful…

year after year passed away
but if you chase after ever after don’t be surprised
If it goes your way

and they taught you the right way
when you thought you were at play
