Pressures

Everyone tells me not to turn
out like them, the ones before
me, but why does it feel like
they are setting me up to fail.
They put me on a high pedistule
but they forget that I'm afraid
of heights. All I can do is
see ways to fall. I'm scared
to move but when I do it
seems I'm being yelled at and
told I'm doing wrong; I'm on
the edge, turning out like them.
What am I supposed to do? How
am I to breathe with this
pressure on me?
