you're gonna be a lawyer! (hahahahahaha ok)

you’re gonna be somebody
you’re gonna make me proud
be someone in this world
you used to chant this
every night before bedtime
without a fail
i would walk into the kitchen
to be motivated by my creator
to be told that i was more
than he would ever be
i believed him
until one day he stopped chanting
our encounters were quiet
avoiding the kitchen
avoiding the feeling of failure
he didn’t stop because 
he no longer believed in me
he stopped because
he was tired
you never realize
how they age too
