My future
Is set by
Expectation

The push
Started with
Provocation

“What do you
Want to be?” they
Questioned

I chose an honest path
With a history of
Condemnation

I want to make
People look pretty
A surgeon for
Beautification

After all
Don’t we just want
Reception?

I sacrificed
Most of my childhood
Animation

To aspire to rename
This shameful
Occupation.

Not until later
Did I think to
Question,

This study
Travels with many
Repercussions,

Why am I
Taking all these
Actions?

To fit into
My parents
Reformation?

To best
My friends’
Ambitions?

Yet despite
My personal
Accusations,

I believe in my goal
Of a future
Reputation.

Therefore I will do my best,
Regardless of the hitchiker’s thoughts and
Contemplations.

I will reach
“My” career by sheer
Determination.

After all
The self
Examinations,

I decide they don’t matter;
They’re worthless
Deliberations.
