“Anonymous”

Believe it or not, we are all measured
by this invisible scale of unrealistic standards.
Meeting all of it means you’re perfect,
Falling short means you’re not good enough.

How can you tell if someone’s not good enough?
If he or she fails your expectations?
Well, guess what?
Expectations come with disappointments.

How can you tell if someone’s perfect?
If your expectations were fully met?
Well, guess what?
You would expect for more.

(Did you expect this poem to go on longer?
Well, guess what?
That’s all.)
