expectancy

 

the push to be

productive,

the measurement of

oneself by standards set up

prior to the obligatory feeling

making one do so,

the absence of

patting on the back

(replaced with the constant

beating---pick a tool of

self-abuse),

the will to be what others

want for a quicker way to the

top,

the destruction of what had been

happiness for the possibility of

security &

safety---

all in the name of

what is

expected,

as a “fully functioning,”
&

“law-abiding”

citizen.

 

has it been worth it?
