Trapped Beneath Expectations
Written by: Thiviyaa Mohanaraj
I’m trapped inside of you, imprisoned by these expectations. You’re expected to be a cooking, cleaning, decent, quiet, housewife, but I’ve been here for too long I’m breaking out of this prison and following my dreams to equality.
I will not stay home and clean, but go to school and study.
I will not be a housewife, but I will get a job and have my own living.
I will not get abused and stay quiet, I will speak out for we all have the same rights... do we not?
Most importantly I will become my true self, with my own identity. I will not live up to expectations, where my true self is hiding beneath your made up layer. I will become myself and no one can change who I am.
