The sun rising each morning, the next breath of air,
And your life getting better with each coming day
Are examples of things you expect to take place.
You believe you’re entitled to provident grace.
You expect things to turn out pretty much your way.
The vibration of wellbeing is everywhere.
You’re expected to have expectations about
Your children because our culture says that we must.
If your child doesn’t meet them then what do you do?
If you panic the worst of your dreams may come true.
Ultimately, you have to let go and to trust
In your child’s decision. You must let go of doubt.
For oneself it’s okay to have expectations
But to have them of others one must be aware
Of the potential of doing harm to someone
Out of your loving kindness. What you may have done
Is abusive. The person may not even care
For your help and it makes for bitter relations.
Let the door stay wide open but do not assume
That someone wants what you want. Be absolutely
Positive in your manner. They may not want to
Take the path that you’ve showed them. Don’t let that make you
A big failure. Just take a deep breath and be free
Of the issue and allow your live to resume.
