Expectations (Publication)

Secret Thoughts Within

Oh hey you, my poem Expectations was recently published in the It’s Not Easy anthology by Poet’s Choice. I have included the poem for your reading pleasure…


You come at me with your expectations
Of you who think I should be
And what you think I should do
But I’m not you.

I’m done with performing
I’ve reached the very end this time,
Your control has kept me caged
And now all I feel is enraged.

I don’t live my life to please you
Your acceptance doesn’t give me value,
Even if you withhold it
I’ll continue and won’t quit.

Watch me live my own life
As I shake off your unrealistic demands,
The life you lead is not for me
I live my own life and I am free.

For Peter… You’ve got this!
