You’re struggling.

You’re thinking
over worked
over tired
you can’t sleep
because you’re thinking.
Did you speak the right words?
Did you write down the right notes?
A few pieces lost
and you’re struggling
because you’ve been taught perfection
by an instructor that isn’t
nor are you
and you’re fighting.
You’re screaming internally
because these human traits
are killing you
this need to listen
but also be heard
this frustration
this correctness
this confusion over right and wrong.
This complicated place
created by humans
you’re struggling here
fighting it because you have to
you were born human
so you’re all of them right?
All the good and the bad
because individualism is lost here
even if it’s proclaimed as strength
it isn’t valued.
You’re struggling to understand
told to work harder
paid less
and you try
you do it
and you’re angered
debted to the scholars
ten years and it’ll dissipate.
You’re still struggling
to determine
is this right
is that wrong
is anyone good
if someone is crying somewhere?
Is anyone evil
if someone is cheering somewhere?
Are we judging our entire lives
by opinion?

Thanks for reading.
