Do not bend under pressure
is oftentimes demanded from us,
and the least signs of weakness is undesirable.
Contradictory as it is,
a huge challenge this duality brings
given that humanity is made up
of both sentiments
And mutually excluding
it would better they not be seen.
Likewise a balloon cannot be
fully blown within our living room
the whole human experience
should not be constrained by certain
conventions that do nothing,
but limiting our full existence.
