Medical or Engineering?
What would you prefer?
These were the only options that I was given
What about the arts?
That's where my passion lies
You can't make a living out of a hobby
I was admonished, get a proper degree
Forced to take up a field I had no interest in
I slogged away for years
I graduated, got a well paying job
Worked promptly from 9 to 5
Doing seemingly satisfying work
But at night I took out my brushes
And I turned to my passion
To create, to breathe, to live
And tried not to notice
That twinge of regret I felt otherwise...
