I don't want to be entitled, well, I don't care!

I don't want to be entitled.
I don't want to be called
the epitome of ethical,
the paragon of virtue
and the abridgment of righteousness.

I don't want to be the
lone specimen of the brightest future.
I don't want to be elected as
'The Future President'
I don't want to be an idol.

For if and when I fail,
My mind- that heard these words,
My mind-that expects itself to succeed
fails.
The burden of failure weighs me down.
The failure to succeed
showers down on me
I fail!

"Life has many ups and downs!"
They say.
Then why would mine be all up?
Why would mine be flawless?

I don't want to be entitled
'The topper'
For when I come second,
I crumble beneath the 
hallucinations of disappointment.

I don't want to be entitled
'The Nerd'
for that personality that needs credit
is concealed beneath.

I don't want to be entitled
for it took me years to realize 
that those titles were just
expectations- of strangers, not mine
Dreams- not for them, but for me.
Legacies grafted that need not be true.
It took me years to realize that
I don't care to be entitled.

    Woah! I especially adored the first and last para...
    You're actually doing a remarkable job!
    The expectations that come up with entitlement feel like a burden, the thorns on which we've to step and dance our way out...
    Loved it!

    Re: That's so sad. I don't know why they don't approve such posts. Two of mine were taken down too but that piece was truly an honour for me, Pavithra! Thank you!<3

    very powerful. this line just stuck with me: "For when I come second,/ I crumble beneath the/ hallucinations of disappointment." i need to do a better job realizing my privilege and stop complaining about petty things... your poem really brought me out of myself. i can't wait to read more of your work, keep writing! <3
