Upon the Futility of Expectations


Well, yes, she says
It’s only human
(And I’m just a person)
To have them expectations.

Yes, he agrees, yes.
(Human? I can’t even begin to tell you!)
I, of course, am NOT a person.

See? This is JUST what I mean.
She attempts to draw out,
Dramatically, why he SO is.

Typical, he snorted, just typical.

Can you not be but repetitive?

Ah. Now, that is what I am?

That’s not a question.
You just made a statement
With a parenthetical interrogative.

So, I am?

Are you?

I’m what you expect me to be
All the time, anyway.
So, is there any other way to be?

That conversation above
Is what I’m privy to.
As Creator, it’s hard, you know
(Parenthetical interrogative, in place
I’m learning, you see)
To block out these
Conversations you’re NOT having.

Your bodies talk too much.
You don’t.

And, them expectations?
If I told you what I had,
And where you’re at…

Ah. The wisdom of a Creator
Is always in question,

When the outcomes
Are as human as you.

I’m unhinged. I’d be the first to admit it. You’re permitted to, of course, join me. 😀

    But the times I like best are when we get more than we expect 🙂

    • Thank you for reading, Malavika 🙂 Well I’d like to join you in sharing the same opinion about expectations!
      And good you’re sharing the url… I hope it has been put in the website box. I cannot see a link on your name, just after it!


  2. Oh blimey! A conversation with God
    Says He, “We’re not in accord!”
    Says me:
    “You see?”
    He: “Talk with your mind, not bod!”!
