Societal Bonds

Societal Bonds

A Poem by Emo_Catrina

Pressure.

Pressure in my mind.

Pressure.

Reasons to keep acts kind.

Pressure.

Expectations to live up to.

Pressure.

Social Acceptance feels like an ill-fit shoe

Pressure.

Social rejection is far too common

Pressure.

Unique people with loud gossip

Pressure.

Resist urges to lead a rebellion

Pressure.

Exalt yourself, your inner rebel, and set yourself free.

Usually I'm not a big fan of so much repetition, but in this case, it works. It's like the dreadful drumbeat of expectations, which conjures up the memories of so many of your well-chosen sources for such pressure, which builds as your message goes on. I hope you & people of your generation can make this progression -- away from being obedient & toward being free -- sooner than I did! Nicely inspiring (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

feeling the pressure means u accepted the challenge. good i think. and how often we see people give up or chicken out. it's either a role-model syndrome or peer pressure. thanks

Someone somewhat recently told me to let some things bounce off rather than get to me. To build walls but with a forcefield to keep certain things from getting to close. I consider pressure one of many things that need to bounce off that force-field or maybe even get electrocuted while it's being reflected. My response to pressure is "f**k-off" before it screws us over.

I love and relate to how strongly you've expressed and defined pressure here but also how you pulled-through with it with the ending by 'set[ting] yourself free'.

Very nice flow of thoughts leading to the needed ending. We need to remember who we are and what we needed. Thank you my friend for sharing the excellent poetry.

Well, the rhyming scheme kinda disappears at around the halfway mark, but I love the sentiment expressed and the way you expressed it. I think we should make the final line into an anthem!
Very nice, Emo_Cat.

There is a lot of pressure here: Im feeling pressured to make a comment on your writing without pressuring you into reviewing my own work.

Clever. The repetition works pretty well.

It's an interesting kind of acrostic thing you have going on with the word 'pressure'.

This was about pressure, right?

Y'all should look at the first letter of each indented line.
