Expectations

Expectations….oh you are such a disappointment!

“Don’t expect anything!”,

A very common advice sought by others.

“Expectations lead to disappointments”, they say.

What if expectations themselves are disappointments?

Yes, they are….a big one in fact.

 

When a child is born, people “expect” him to be what they want.

He grows up in these chaos , of expectations,

And if he chooses to go in another direction…

They will say , “See we told you…don’t expect anything”.

 

When you are about to get married,after being compelled for long,

and hope to live a fairy tale life like they made you expect…

but it turns out that life is not so fairy tale- ish after all,

still they say “See we told you…don’t expect anything”.

 

When you desperately need to get a job, to escape from people,

but end up not getting one…again the loud roar

“SEE WE TOLD U…DON’T EXPECT ANYTHING”.

 

Why should it always be like this…. why is expecting a disappointment?

why are people hypocritical? why do they have to judge you always?

why cant everyone just stop expecting and  live life as it comes!
