hard in high school, not taking time

out to party, that she’d get into

college &

there were

no signs of a struggle.

college, when s/he got out, s/he’d

get a good job, be able to pay back

all his/her loans & would be able

to build a good life &

there were no signs of a struggle.

 

was told that if s/he worked really

hard at her/his job, spending more

than normal full time hours in the

office, that it would all pay off &

eventually, s/he’d have time to

kick back &

there were no signs of a struggle.

 

was told that finding a monogamous

relationship that led to marriage was

the way to be & settling down was

what everybody was doing &

there were no signs of a struggle.

 

was told that having a kid was the

next thing to do, that it would bring

a newness to the already fading

relationship between her/him & said

spouse &

there were no signs of a struggle.

 

was told that once the child was

raised, s/he’d have time after to enjoy

the time when s/he was retired &

then s/he’d be happy (and there were

no signs of a struggle).

 

was told that sickness had invaded their

life & so s/he started to buy into a

“faith” of some kind, which would

promise happiness in the next life or

another life, or somewhere else besides

here &

there were no signs of a struggle.

 

was found dead just like the rest of us

will be, but

with no signs of a struggle.
