Expectations

Society expects you to do anything and everything.

Society expects you to ave high marks in your academics.

Society expects you to go to college.

Society expects you to have a job.

Society expects you to be accomplished.

Society expects you to express yourself.

Society expects you to voice your opinion.

Society expects you to be beautiful.

Go to college. No, not that college.

Get a job. No, not that job.

Be accomplished. No, not in that field.

Express yourself. No, not that way.

Voice your opinion. No, your opinion is wrong.

Be beautiful. No, not in that way.

Go here, get this job, go into this field,

Don't do that, you're wrong, you're not pretty.

Society wants you to be great.

Society wants you to be amazing.

But SOCIETY doesn't want you to be great or amazing in that way.

There is no pleasing SOCIETY.

Do what makes you happy.

Do what you want to do.

Be happy.

Be you.

Do not take no for an answer

From SOCIETY.
