Archives For Expectations



Copyright 2013

By Felina Silver Robinson

We start off young wanting and needing things
We expect them because we often know that if we ask, we get
Some of us are told not to expect it, that we have to earn it, if we want it go for it, and get it

We tell our children, our employees, our doctors, our politicians, what we expect
They in-turn tell us what they expect from us

We give love, we expect love back
We give our time, we expect something, anything back
We give our money, and by golly someone or something better not disappoint us

We expect to be happy, not always knowing that we control our own happiness.

Just because you expect it, doesn’t mean you’re going to get it, or that you even deserve it
Work hard and you may be surprised how things work out

Without you mom

There would be no me

My beautiful children would not exist

My beautiful grand-daughter would not exist

Because of you mom

We can say

Happy Mother’s day to three generations of your love

Thank you

For giving me life

And raising me up

To give me the chance to be a mother

And giving me the chance to pass that on

There is no other gift greater

Than that of being a mother and a grandmother all at once

If I could turn back the hands of time

I would wipe away





And Ignorance

I would make people

Accept all differences between

Themselves and others
