is this you! (nothing to expect)

Expect nothing.

Live frugally On surprise.

become a stranger

To need of pity Or,

if compassion be freely

Given out



Take only enough

Stop short of urge to plead

Then purge away the need.


Wish for nothing larger

Than your own small heart

Or greater than a star;



Tame wild disappointment

With caress unmoved and cold

Make of it a parka

For your soul.


Discover the reason why

So tiny human midget

Exists at all

So scared unwise

But expect nothing.

Live frugally

On surprise.
