The race

For some people,
Whatever you do will never be enough.
They will always keep you on a pedestal,
Somewhere on top,
When you will look down ,
The only thing you will see is a happier version of yourself.
You left in trying to reach that pedestal,
A pedestal which is still not enough for them.
And one day that pedestal will not be enough for you as well.

Because the only thing we have been told to run behind are imaginary pedestals of money, marks, jobs , foreign universities.
Until the day we decide to jump off the pedestal.
And if someone prefers a pedestal more than you,
Tell them to achieve those standards on their own.
Cause we are not standardized commodities or dresses in a Zara sale vying for the attention of customers,
We are humans. And we deserve to walk instead of running.

Run ahead of things ,
Don’t run behind them.
