Expect Nothing

Expect Nothing

Expect nothing. Live frugally
On surprise.
become a stranger
To need of pity
Or, if compassion be freely
Given out
Take only enough
Stop short of urge to plead
Then purge away the need.

Wish for nothing larger
Than your own small heart
Or greater than a star;
Tame wild disappointment
With caress unmoved and cold
Make of it a parka
For your soul.

Discover the reason why
So tiny human midget
Exists at all
So scared unwise
But expect nothing. Live frugally
On surprise.

  1. Yes, this is a way to go in life without knowing how to be serene, sure…gecause in away, if you expect too much perfection, if I might say, you will aways be disapointed…because no one and noyhing is perfect…we can tend to be or to reach a goal, for we have to know that nothing is impossible, but everyrhing depends on the way we do and see things I guess. Nice post, have a great week, Delvi…and thanks for all your visits!
