Favorite Quote:
And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. ~Sylvia Plath

Walls are pressing in,
I hold my breath, shrink away,
Not long 'till I'm crushed.

Quietly, Quietly, Hush,
Silence. Yet they never pause,
Closer, here they come.

Walls are pressing in,
I'll never be small enough,
to be contained. Help.

Up, the only escape,
I can't hold my breath that long,
Before I implode.

Walls are pressing in,
I don't care. Can't crush air. I'm never coming down.

The author's comments:
This is about peer pressure, what it feels like to have a million conflicting opinions coming at you from every angle, being so trapped that you can't even summon enough breath to tell 'em to all f*** off. Or at least, that's how I feel. But hey, its exam season, so I am feeling insane with pressure.
