The Faces of Alcovy- Students' Smiles
Your voices keep crying out to me. They flood my mind.
Sometimes, they are all I seem to hear.
When alone, I hear you say “You can do it! You can do it!”
Why do you keep telling me that I can when, guess what, I CANT!
YOU! Yes I mean you; you parents, you peers, you mentors, you adults.
You can make me feel lost; without direction.
You have caused me to drown in my own tears.
The sleepless nights are the WORST.
YOU create YOUR expectations for me.
By accomplishing your expectations, I can make YOU happy. But…
What about my happiness?
Am I just a puppet which you utilize to live your life again vicariously?
I need help to make my own choices, not forceful demands.
Your demands obscure my individuality and blur my concept of choice.
