Expectations

I want to make you
Proud.
To see
To be with
To know
Me.
I need to know
That you know
Just what is there
Beside you.

But.

I need you to know
That I know
Who I am.
I know my
Strength
Beauty
Gifts
Triumphs
Value.
My worth is well
Established.

I am
Invincible
Incredible
Incongruent
With expectation.

But.

I am not
Impervious
Ignorant
Isolated
From a reality
That overburdens
And overrides
This knowing.
