Just when I think there’s been a change

Just when I think the brain’s been rearranged

Just when I think obstacles have been constrained

There’s a smash, crashing return to the old

The opening petals refuse to unfold

The rebirthing story will not be told

Just when I imagine, my hope’s short-changed.

Reality is bitterly cold.

My expectations are really what’s strange.

    Would you be like Pip if your Great Expectations come to fruition but turn out to be from a source other than you had imagined? 🙂

  4. Your expectations and your reality need to sit down and have a serious tete-a-tete.
