Writing it off

Let’s start with the numbers we have:
Not too shabby but not too impressive.
What about passion?
She seems to have it but,
She lacks the discipline to channel it well.
Will she make it?
Her friends seem apprehensive.
Her parents seem apathetic – do what you will.
So one by one, you write it off.
All the accolades and the likes and comments.
All the “yes, you can” make way for “Not too sure”.
She tries to keep her head above the water.
The neck hurts, the limbs flail helplessly.
The brain contorts and twists all the possibilities,
Into nightmares and into impossibilities.
