(49) Expectations vs. Reality

I'm tired of building my life
around the hopes of somedays
I'm tired of waiting
for everyone else to make their decisions
so I can just keep trying to live my life
I'm tired of being disappointed
because every time I
get my hopes up --
even in little things --
it all comes crashing down

Is this growing up?
Realizing sometimes a dream
is just a dream
or that sometimes hope
is just a wish that isn't coming true...

I miss days of simple wishes
where expectations met reality
Please God bring those days back to me
or show me how to dream
& find the strength 
to make it my reality
