Expectations

Why should I expect

you to be perfect?

When I am the one

with the defects.

Why should I expect

you to do what I say?

when you see me

act in such dismay.

Why should I expect

you to follow my rules?

when I look in the mirror

and see a fool.

Why should I expect

you to be the very best?

When I am the one

that is possessed.

Why should I expect

you not to despair?

When I was the one

who was never there.

Why should I expect

you to be here for me?

When finally,

you have the chance to flee.

  1. I don’t expect you to be perfect,
    nor to do what I say.
    I do expect you not to despair,
    for I will improve
    if you’ll just meet me there
    … there at that half-way point
    where
    we both are there
    for one another.
