Expectations

We all have expectations,
And they almost always let us down.
They fly us to the heavens,
And drop us to the ground.

They lead us down dim roads
With the courage that they give,
Only to abandon us
To this world in which we live.

It's perfection that we seek
In everything there is;
It's perfection that evades us –
Makes our dreams fade and fizz.

We all have expectations,
And they almost always let us down.
In the end, all they become
Is a blackened, bent and broken crown.
