High Expectations

Swetha Mathai, Staff Writer

They treat me like a creature from the night
Waiting for me to start a fight
Always expecting the worst from me
Because they lost their faith in me
Expecting me to fail as usual
Falling backward instead of battling the dual

Adrenaline rising, blood rushing
Feeling hot tempered from theses high expectations
Don’t know where I’m going
Hopeful but broken
From these high expectations
