Better off

This poem is about being in the spotlight and feeling pressure. You start to wonder if you’re doing it for yourself or for everyone else.

It’s not about whether we’re fine
we will be in due time
It’s about what we currently still mean
how did we let others come between

Do we want to hand in the paper
without proof-reading first
declaring it’s the final version
before realizing possible fixes for the aversion

Why’d we build a glass bridge to begin with
Even words can break it
None of us are better off
when we have to pretend and act tough
