The news hit him like bolt from blue,
The unexpected worst is finally through,
He wailed and wondered “ No, it can’t be true” !!
He felt as if life had hit him with a shoe.
Expectation resulted in frustration,
Haunting him like some infestation,
Leading him to depression,
Leaving him to gasp in exasperation.
Expectation has painted vivid pictures in his brain,
He was the willing prisoner tied to its chain,
He was dead sure to make some gains,
But he was enriched only with pains.
He underestimated the cold hands of fate,
He expected all days will be great,
But fate has knocked him down to the mat,
He expected too much and it is now too late.
In an instant, situations can flip,
The cup can tumble before you take a sip,
In the river of life, you can’t always have a lucky dip,
Be prepared to take the lashes of whip.
Don’t take the life for granted,
To face the worst, keep your feet firmly planted,
Expectations will only get you disenchanted,
Make a move only when you have calculated.
