For a long time

For a long time
I thought you had
To be already down to
Get up again
But I just realized it’s
Totally possible to
Get even higher on life
When life isn’t as bad
As you expected
So maybe it’s good to not expect
But it’s even better when you
Expect something
And you’re pleasantly surprised
Despite you’re initial optimism
To see that things really are
Going as you had hoped
