What Do We Expect?

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, June 27, 2010 Under: Poetry

What do we expect?

Do we set low expectations

because of shadows in the past,

hiding what we fear and seek to hide from?


What do we expect?

Hurt and pain and consequences

because of the crawling we've done

and never want to do again?

What do we expect?

Do we not say our words,

sing our song, speak the truth

because we've been shut down before?

What do we expect?

Do we ever hope to reach out dreams

or do we find ways to not manifest our goals

because of failures or lack of support?

Isn't it time to expect something new?

What if we imagine a life full of promise -

abundance, happiness and contentment?

Doing so can bring an energy of hope.


Even if it is not a reality right now -

so what does that mean?

Doesn't our brain want to plug into

the positive energy and unhook from

the negative energy sucking us dry?

Let's manifest a glimmer of hope.

Start with one glimmer -

a light that is fighting to be seen.

Watch it shine no matter what.

And add to it - everyday.

Expect great things, great people,

your dreams into reality,

your heart to be healed and shared,

your smile to get wider

because your expectations

are going to be exactly

what you get.
