Expect - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Expect nothing
Expect all
Expect to get up after a fall
Expect to come
Expect to go
Expect to reap that which you sow
Expect confusion
Expect some pain
Expect sunshine after it rains
Expect to laugh
Expect to cry
Expect not to know the reasons why
Expect to expect
Expect that’s true
Expectations are nothing new

    Simple yet so perfectly true to life..
    Expectation is basically in us the child..
    The child which in age grows
    A child who has all the emotions
    maturity and several modifications
    But expectation adds the after meal pudding to life
    When fulfilled they seem sweet
    Unfulfilled add the bitter taste fr a while
    Lovely way uve said it all
    It was sure a pleasure it was everything said in nutshell small..
