The world is full of opportunities, but opportunities which come at a price

Because everything in the world is not for free.

The cost was at my parents', who showered me in their dreams yet unachieved.

I aim to please them, but by pleasing them I continue to get lost.

Now, I don't know where I will end up- I don't know my goals.

I don't know my dreams- No!- I don't yearn for my dreams

I lay back and watch other grab their dreams and pull themselves out of the mental hole.

I wallow in my sodden space-

Enclosed by the muddy soil smothering all my chances of rising.

I still love my parents for giving me the opportunities I never knew I had.

Eager to achieve their dream, I now no longer know my own.
