Dedicated to M who called me today, as feels she is a failure and is struggling with her job. Of course I told her she is nothing of the sort.

Some may earn their aspiration

With hard fought perspiration,

Many lack the dedication

To meet their expectation,

Most dream of love and family;

Happily stay locally,

Or excel academically;

Travel universally,

Proportion strain to have it all,

Flirting and working through school

And become the Belle of the ball

As they've learnt each golden rule,

Minority strive to break free

By fighting bureaucracy ,

And one may ask, how about me?

Well, I aspire to be.
