Two doors stand right in front of

Which one should I open?
Door number 1 or door number 2?
What lies behind each is unknown
how should I know which path is my

One door has a life I've always dreamed of but
with it comes the expectations of others.
I've been judged my whole life, why should I live up to the expectations
of other people.
Behind the other is the true meaning

of life.
Where I can be free to just be me.
Why do I even ask you, for you to lead me in the dark when I can just ask myself and be true.
Before my eyes one door is opened and I see what lies ahead for me.
So now I see what is meant for me
The closed door which can only be opened by me.

I was inspired by the thoughts and expectations that people have of me and I decided that I was the only person who knows what path I am going to take in life
