• Fifteen years; only this far, only this much
    Fifteen years with much knowledge yet to touch.
    Such a future is one that is not clearly set
    But the expectations are already set too high, I bet.

    Pressure from others to reach the top
    The pressure of shame the moment I flop.
    The fear of failure and loss of face
    A burden that will always drag with me throughout time and space.

    To persevere and endure is about all i can do
    But the very least it will get me through.
    I'll meet their expectations, heck, I'll surpass it if it is the case
    But I'll do it my way at my own pace.
