“Expect the worst,

youll never be disappointed”


they say this but the thing is

as reasonable as this sounds

it isnt true every time

as crazy as it may seem

too many of us know

disappointment can be a friend

or at least not the enemy

others make it out to be

too many of us dont know

have no idea at all, at times

what to do with the best

when it, and not the worst,

comes knocking at our door

its an easier thing to be

disappointed in our disappointment

than be forced to welcome joy

pleasure is unfamiliar ground


Expect the Worst
