Disappointments

Disappointments.
I’ve known quite a few.
They’re stuff I would rather forget.
Yet always they’re in my head
Prancing about ever so cruel!

Disappointments
In my looks.
Disappointments
In my work.
Disappointments
With my family.
Disappointments
With self worth.

Disappointments.
I’ve known my fair share.
Taking me for a skyride
Then dropping me in midair.

Disappointments
In relationships.
Disappointments
In scholastics.
Disappointments
In politics.
Disappointments
In logistics!

Just once I’ll like to throw
Disappointments
Into the nearest gutter.
To look up at clear blue skies
That set my heart a-flutter.

Just once I’ll like to hurl
Disappointments
Outta my world.
To tell them “Go!
Go away, fly a kite.
Just pretty please
Get outta my sight!”
