Everyone seems to have all these high expectations for me,
for I am a preacher's daughter,
I am a "smart" person,
I am innocent.
No one expects me to slip up.
I am not allowed to get a bad grade,
that is unheard of!
but if I do,
I face unfair judgements because I "know better".
People think that I have done no wrong,
because have the look of innocence upon my face,
It's quite funny actually.
Why, of course it's mandatory for me!
I better not even think about persuing opportunities elsewhere.
The pressure put upon me is almost too much to bear at times,
for I am the first to graduate from high school amongst my siblings.
I am not pregnant,
my life actually looks like I'm going somewhere far.
I am depended on to make something of myself,
I have to make my family proud.
I cannot be a dissappointment,
everyone is relying on me.
It'd be a shame if I decided to give up,
due to all of the pressures put upon me,
along with all of the exceedingly high expectations..
