Expectations (wordplay)

Expectation of others
Disappointment. Anger
Breaking an unspoken
guarantee //
Letting go: Letting be
creating space
for human complexity
Nothing to forgive
when you don’t expect
not even compassion
truth or respect –
Isn’t this an impossible
possibility?

Expectations of self
Harsh. Shackled
A burden, how others
want me to be
A mirror, how I want
to project me //
Desire: Ceasing
measured behaviour
self-(r)ejecting
authenticity –
Isn’t this an expectation
essentially?

Speak your mind, but please be kind
