I failed to make them see I never wanted what they wanted for me. Again, again, I tried to hide my soiled hands from the eyes of discipline. Again, I tried to make them understand this was mine. This was mine before they pried the motivation from my grasp, before they bastardized what I hold in my heart. I failed, I failed, and they’ll never know how they tainted me. Their obligation killed my desire. Their expectation extinguished the fire. Once again, I tried. Once again, I failed. Their expectation killed my desire. Their expectation extinguished the fire.
