Expectation pressures

Upon your shoulders lay the weights
Of expectations from those that matters
Including the ones, of yourselves
Heavier the pressure is being felt
Slowly crushing, weighing you down
Trying the very best, using our abilities
Giving everything we possess
For acknowledgements from love ones
Sometimes a few words from them
Means the world to us
Knowing they are proud of us
Makes all our efforts, worth the effort
Even though, no one expects from us
To accomplish things beyond our limits
We automatically expect ourselves of it
Wanting to prove, that your something
Just to make them proud
To feel a pat on the back
To feel that your life isn’t useless
To feel acknowledged
In trying the hardest you could
Not wanting, to disappoint anyone
