Maybe I'm doing it all wrong,
Expecting too much,
Wanting my life like one in a song,
Wanting something that is hard to touch.

I try not to,
But I still turn the coin looking for the tarnish,
In every beautiful day,
I expect the weather to turn harsh.

I thought a holiday would cleanse my soul,
But now back in my reality,
Stagnancy again takes it's toll,
Who said there was good in familiarity?

Do I expect too much?
Demanding's that aren't quite fair?
Cos when I glance at the garden,
I don't see the flowers I see the weeds under there.

I'm doing all the right things,
Improving my mind and soul,
Broadening my horizons,
Refusing to take a lesser role.

Maybe those around me,
Are finding it hard to cope with this new improved version?
Maybe too much too soon is a dangerous thing?
I'm only trying to be a better person.

Don't get me wrong though,
I see beauty now so much more,
In nature and people, emotions too,
My life is no longer a chore.

I've seen some proof it's working,
I'm just waiting for more to come,
To set my soul flying again,
Not let it twirl undone.

Things can only get better,
Isn't that what they always say?
So I'll brush aside these doubts,
And open my heart to the joys of the day.

Isis, very lovely poem. Perhaps we all expect too much. I am trying to rid myself of expectations of any kind of anybody. Acceptance, I believe is the key to happy realtionships with others and with ourselves. I also believe that it is a process,one that will continue for the rest of our lives. But something to ever strive to perfect!

Wise words my friend, as I journey through this thing called life I'm slowly realising things. Thanks so much. (HUGS)

Isis, really enjoyed your poem. Can definately relate but something I have learned...Don't let go of your growth, even though others may not appreciate it or respond to it as you imagined they might. You know you are a wonderful person and find strength from knowing your friends know that too. So this I write for you...

Sometimes when we work to change
our loved ones will treat us just the same
and claim it is you that is acting strange.
So think of it as bait on a hook,
so keep loving and don't look...
at that worm on the hook.

You know I'm your friend...you can e-mail me at anytime...
