It is Not Expected of You

March 13, 2008
By Michael Schwartz, La Vergne, TN

It is not expected of you
To cry
To yell
To do bad things

It is expected of you
To succeed
To exceed
To do good things

You must be
Kind
Good
Smart
Obedient

You mustn’t be
Rude
Ungrateful
Ungraceful
Unexpected

You are
Not fun
Not cool
Not one of us

It is expected.
