    We all have expectations whether they are lower or higher, we have them.  We meet people throughout our lives and we subconsciously hold hope of positive experiences for the future.  Without expectation, I believe we'd be inhuman.  We MUST have expectations of our...

    I'm just a mess of a person.

    It is true. No matter what one offers up be it exaggeration, understatement, apathy or authentic truth; others will write over with their own words, their silent hopes and fears: expectation. I meant no such thing; made no such commitment; why did you not trust my silent...

    I Always Do.

    I'm never able to live up to people's expectations, no matter how hard I try. I'm not trusted anymore, because of it. Nobody asks me for help much anymore. I let everyone down, even myself.

     I've always been a disappointment to my family. My older brother is seemingly perfect. The straight A student. The athlete. The kid who's never in trouble. There's never a pause from my parents when someone asks how he's doing. Then there's me. I'm not a bad kid am I? So I...

    I Promise

    I am human.  I make mistakes.  I will let you down.  I promise.  I do try to learn from my mistakes.  I'm not perfect.  No where near it.  I just ask that you be patient with me.

    Never give me any piece of you. I'm never going to be mended, and the things you want me to keep will slip through the breaks and fissures. Don't expect so much from me. I'm a poor excuse for family, a lousy friend, and a romantic who is carbonated, just air inside. Just air. Don...
