Do You Weigh Expectations? – Written Thursday 21st May 2009 (Aged 36)

Do You Weigh Expectations?

do we ever think –
about what we expect of others
do our own needs always come first
are we hungry –
with insatiable thirst
do we ever think –
about suffocating others
not reaching the flag
shuffling through life
with such a heavy bag
do we ever think –
about what it is we expect of others
or is it just about –
what we have to gain
consumed as we often are
by such internal pain




James Garratt – Thursday 21st May 2009
