Do I want to be caught?

By success? Fuck no! Then I should be worried about

Competition, Gains, Authority.

By love? Please! I will be hearing things about not being

Romantic, Good in Bed(which I so am), Good enough.

By money? Nahhh….. I don’t want a piece of money

Determining my worth, my value.

But all these thoughts persist. No matter how much

I try to drive them out of my head.

They also seem to chase me for unwanted reasons,

A job I am not happy with, A partner who just wants,

And money which is not of my earning.

A little bit on today’s youth. Follow your dreams! Follow your heart! It may sound easy but once you do this, it gets better. Do check out poetryhive for the prompts
