Per­haps it’s time to set aside
My wish­es for reac­tion
To sim­ply gaze upon the world
In unfet­tered sat­is­fac­tion

To not expect my expec­ta­tions
To let go of my wish­es
To let life sim­ply do it’s thing
And then go do the dish­es

I don’t know why I can’t release
My mind says this is rea­son
Emo­tions back up silent­ly
And look on with deri­sion

To let the bird fly from the glove
It’s free­dom now released
If ever it returns to me
My expec­ta­tions may then cease.
