Expectation is just a word,

But it can sometimes be so broad

Never expect anything,

Cause people are always disappointing.


Limit your expectations,

Even on your own relations.

Keep them high on your achievements

Because people lead to disappointments.


Always know your place in someone’s life,

Because people can sometimes strife.

Sometimes you create your own heartbreak,

For the expectations you make.


I’ve learned that,

No matter what

People tend to disappoint you,

Because of the things they do.


Don’t expect as what people say,

Because it’s going to hurt you anyway.

No matter who they are

They’ll always leave you with a scar.


Once you learn to limit what you expect

There’ll be a lot more for you to collect,

Everything that comes in your way,

Will be a bonus to your day.


Never expect too much,

Whatever is meant to happen, will happen.
