Inheritance

The dream eludes you,

Falls short,

Dies away.

 

You see in my eyes,

A spark,

That mirrors,

Your own reflection,

Of yesterday.

 

I inherit the need,

To succeed sow the seeds,

Of salvation,

To undo your failures.

 

I feel pressure,

To win the prize,

For your smiles.

 

 

To show enthusiasm,

Time after time,

To chase dreams,

That were never mine.

 

I do it all,

To make you proud,

Not of me, but,

Of yourself.
