Caught in Expectation

We’re caught in our expectations of how things should be;
our relationships, our bosses and the world according to our beliefs.

But our reality is merely a fantasy of how we wish things to be
with little to no grounding in the bigger picture of reality!

When things don’t go according to our desire
we dig in and try to make the impossible transpire.

Letting go or going with the flow feels like a failure
we need to control things and mould them to our will

Yet everything is interdependent and choices arise
its up to us to listen, learn, grow and compromise!

Get disappointed when expectations aren’t met?
let go, relax, dissolve and I bet

That life will become easier
relationships so much breezier

So weigh up the cons and pros
before allowing to things to get right up your nose.

Relinquish all expectations and fears,
nurture kind care to avoid those emotional tears.

Daily Prompt:  Expectation



  1. WORD!!!! You said it here…. As I was reading this fabulous poem above, I kept thinking of my 27yr old daughter and how for the passed few 10 yrs I have been driving these words into her head and how she is “finally” hearing it. Good Morning World!
