Why is there so much pressure from society?
To take the vow and make that everlasting promise
To bring life into the world and bring that life up
I don’t want to do either of these two things
But there is always the statement of
“When you get married and have kids…”
What makes you assume it’s just going to happen?
I have never felt that maternal instinct
When I have looked at a baby or played with a child
I have never wanted to get married either
Maybe it’s the unknown or maybe it’s the fear?
Of being stuck in a relationship for the rest of my life
I think would rather live by myself and be independent
Travel the world with no shackles on my feet
Live my life the way I have always dreamed it to be
So please don’t assume because you will be surprised
