Let you down

I guess Iím a disappointment  
Cause I cant do anything right.  
You lecture me,
Tell me how to live my life.  
I know you mean well  
But what you want for me  
I dont want for myself.  
But here we are  
Face to face  
And Iím trying to figure out  
How do i tell you  
Who i really am.
How do i make you understand.  
 
Six years in colleges
And still havenít graduated.  
Yeah Iím still moving forward.  
But youíre down my throat.  
ďYou need an internshipĒ
I dont want one though.  
ďYou wonít find a full time jobĒ
But Who said I wanted one.  
I dont fit the mould.  
And I have no intentions to conform.  
 
This is all i want
To write  
And speak into your life.  
Tell you how i feel
And what Iím dealing with.  
I dont want your 9-5 job.  
I want to travel  
And speak the truth.  
So before you tell me  
Oh thatís unrealistic,
Iíve been listening  
To you say that my whole life.  
But your realistic way  
Itís not working out.  
My passions are what drive me.  
Not your unrealistic expectations of me.
