It’s not as it seems to be
I do things just to impress my parents
Sometimes I have to sacrifice my dreams,
My likes, things that interest me
Just so that I don’t disappoint my parents
I don’t and never want to be the reason
For my parents’ sadness, even worse their tears

It’s like living in a cage
A love cage
I have to do things that
My parents want me to do
They’re living their dreams through me
It pains me
I end up encouraging myself saying
“It’s tough love, they only want what’s
best for me”
Deep down I know I slightly disagree
