expect nothing

absently minded lost in thought
relearning all the things
i was already taught

life is tuition
and tuition is tough
life isn’t for the gentle and kind
it’s for the hard and rough

only showing strength is being weak
you should listen
but all you do is speak

you make your assumptions
based on your expectations
well don’t expect anything from me
then you will not be so disappointed

    Hello there,

    You write wonderful poetry up here. Well done! Keep penning and keep inspiring. You’ll do wonders one day, I am sure! 🙂

    And please take a look at my blog; I write poetry too. Some poems that may be of interest to you: “Love is a Heart Throbbing Joyride”, “My Greetings to You”, “Your Heart is My Favorite Playground”. Thank you and have a lovely day my friend! 🙂

    • Very much appreciated my friend. I particularly liked “Your heart is my favourite playground” and I think I shall indulge in a little pantun over the next few days. Thank you for reading. xxx
