Clash of Expectations

The clash of expectations

When they’re not your own

Tests your limitations

“Isn’t it already shown?

Must I listen to interpretations?”


Opinions can be expressed

Though it’s a tribute to share

Some may need to be repressed

As an alternate way to care

For nobody wants disbeliefs pressed


Regard your lack of control

Respect the adventure others take

There’s a limit to how much you can dole

For it’s still their journey to make

On their own, they will become whole
