anonymous travelers walking along sandy seashore


the burden of own longings
unfinished wanting’s
relationships with accountings.

Holding onto like a baby clinging
Breaking within when not meeting.

The real spoiler in relations
Another’s choices dictating over decisions
Pressure to meet the unreasonable conditions
Unending Fights to achieve positions

Not set them so high
To end with a sigh.
Just right for self and in relations
Don’t push to see it broken.
A constant tug of war between real and expectations
Keeps life in the right direction.

    1. Yes expectations should be just right, from whom and how much to expect, so that it does not break ones expectation or another’s strength to live up to it. Thank you for taking out time to comment , means a lot.๐Ÿ™‚๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ™
