STOP EXPECTING

STOP EXPECTING

A Poem by Flutterby aish
"

Stop trying to be someone others expect you to be because expectations never end and satisfaction is never attained!

"
STOP EXPECTING that I can conquer the world,
STOP EXPECTING that I can stand all alone,
STOP EXPECTING that I will strive for the best,
While striving for the best I have made my life hell!
 
JUST FOR THE SAKE to be who you want,
JUST FOR THE SAKE to always choose the right path,
JUST FOR THE SAKE to be your good child,
I have forgotten how to live my life!

STOP EXPECTING that I won't break down,
STOP EXPECTING I'll be your lifelong clown,
STOP EXPECTING that I'll live your unfulfilled dreams,
I have a life of my own, my own dreams to achieve!

Love the Stop Expecting lines. The world, family, friends, employers and so on and son expect us to be what they want but it is up to us to be who we want and how to live. Thanks for sharing this because once in awhile we need to read that we are not alone in the struggle to remain true to yourself. Laters, N.

Wow. This one has tugged at my heartstrings. I can feel the emotions behind these lines. The problem with the society is that it expects too much from us. It forces us into doing things we don't enjoy. Ultimately we will realize that we can;t live a lie. We will have to get out of this cage and do what we love. only then can we have peace.

A really good write. Loved the concept in this one :)

You're welcome
There is such pressure by friends, family, loved ones and society in general to expect too much of some people and hypocritically to let others glide through life as they see fit. I have personal attachment to this poem now and forever. Thanks for sharing.

i am glad you could relate. thank you for reading.
I really like how you layed this piece out. The image and the changing colors bring out the power that drives home the message this poem is about. While I agree that in society, expectations have far exceeded the level of opression that a normal person should have to deal with, but at the same time I believe that a person has to expect something of themselves, or they wouldn't be able to set their own goals, to attain their dreams.
Thus I see the focus in this piece, not so much about the idea of expectations, but rather the idea of ceasing following the masses normal and endevouring to become individuals again.

Great Creativity and Ink!

Thank you.......glad you liked it!
Overall I like this quite a bit, it is incredibly relatable and powerful. My only issue is I feel that the middle stanza's "Just for the sake" could be replaced with something better, for me at least it ruins the flow of the piece. I'm sorry i can't suggest a better phrase, their may not be one. Oh and before I forget I do love the line "STOP EXPECTING I'll be your lifelong clown," that line is brilliance!

Keep up the good work!

Thnx for the review and the advice!
Wow! So very powerful. Even though people say to just live up to your own expectations they still have their expectations for you. The way I most relate is because my dad wants me and my sister to go to very prestigious colleges since he never finished his degree at community college. i.e. Duke, MIT, Cambridge, penn state. Keep writing!! :)
