Expectation I see before me
So many people expecting my success
They give me no praise, they call me a geek
But they don’t know what’s underneath.
The pressure, it breaks me
It kills me inside
The tears they flow
I break down and cry.
My friends, the teachers, they know how I am,
But failure is no option
Hurt, alone, empty, afraid
Don’t give me pressure, my fate is laid.
She can do it, we know
but her fear turns to hatred
she is so afraid and scared of her fate
why can’t she see it’s just one mistake?!
We can’t stop her upset
It turns into stress
One final straw
and she won’t do her best.
We all try and help her, but none of it works,
Not only us friends, the rest of our school.
All who know. All who will care but
the ones who can help only leave us alone.
I know of her stress, but as her teacher
What can I do? I just can’t help her!
Her friends, they are clever, it can’t help her much
But what can I do? She just can’t give up!
Those others, they judge her, they just don’t leave her,
But I suppose they don’t all know.
A minority who can help, they just won’t listen.
Oh, what am I supposed to do?
I have a few weeks
I just need to save her
From this dark cloud
To find her saviour.
