Dealing With Expectations

Dealing With Expectations

1 min 243 1 min 243


Expectations

Fairly decent

Not quite high

Expecting good things

For self from other beings

And best of life

Is what for I strife


Then slowly but surely

Things start falling apart

Expectations are no more expectations

But full-fledged demands


Demands which take their toll

Have on its own evolved

I fall short

Of what I wished to be

Situations go astray

As nothing is going my way

People are letting me down

For they fail to live up

To my expectations which

Are in the shape of demands now

What to do and how? 


I wallow in self-pity

Anger has its uncertainty

I retaliate

Making worse of bad

Wishing I never had

Expected


Expected too much

Or was it way little

Blame is the game

Hunting for the name

Anger, pity, hatred grow

Inside I feel so low


Screaming and crying inside

I go glum outside

Then came a noble soul

To take me out of the hole


Told me where did my fault lie

Somewhere I never cast my eye

Inside me are twins alright

One enormous other slight


One named ‘want' desire more

Other ‘content' share more

I fed my wants

And out of it expectations grew

And when did they turn into demands

Little did I knew


Feeding the content

Is harder he told me

For joy of sharing it beget

And pleasure of giving ever experience thee
