Don’t Expect Anything

The picture has been painted
Awaited outcome hanging
On tenterhooks baited
Disappointment
A lesson to never expect
For without it
There is no preparation
For the fall or rise of emotion
From the delivered answer
Instead
Flow calmly with the result
Lines of silver
Made from gold or tin
Taciturn soul
Accepting
Finding peace in following
The path found ahead
Gratitude in each step
For the learning
For the experience
Trying to remember
Not to paint the picture
In a desired effect
But take from the conclusion
All that it offers to teach
Blessed by the giving
This schooling allowing growth
Inching slowly forward
By each lack of expectation
And every outcome seen light
