Expectations

Expectations
shorten us
displaces our happiness
and changes what we could be.

Expectations
how long to finish a task
how quickly to speak
how many words we shall know
how well we should write.

Expectations
quitting before we finish
because of the limits
we put upon ourselves
what we expect
to what it could be
and we shut down
we quit
because we fear
that we will meet the requirements
we put upon our work
ourselves.

Expectations
limit us.

Thanks for reading.
