Expectations

 by Jill N. Pontiere

There I go again

Expecting you to be who I want you to be

Not letting you just be who you are

Knowing that you can’t give what you don’t

have to give

Yet I’m expecting more

Waiting for you to do what I think you should do

You of course don’t; and do your own thing

But those damn expectations, they get in my way

Causing me to have resentments, among other things

So maybe the secret to living together is letting those expectations go

Accepting you for what you can give, not letting resentments grow

Ok expectations, get out of my brain

Let me allow others to be who they are once again

The resentments won’t fester and eat me alive

Who knows?

I just might be able to survive…
