    We can have expectations but no more than we can achieve someday. When we are unable to achieve the expected we must not be disenchanted or disillusioned.Also compassion to fellow human being is a positive behaviour as well as good for community goodness. A good poem any way to read and self awareness. It likes much and also being it short one small is beautiful anyway so says. (Report) Reply

    The world would be a better place if all were to live like this expecting nothing. The world would be rid of suicides. My ambitious spirit tells me I can. Yes I can! (Report) Reply

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
