So who are we?

First, perceptions
Later, expectations

Others’ of me (occasionally, rather startling)
Mine of others (often, wholly unexpressed)
Mine of myself (surprisingly, more gentle)

Heads or tails… which side of the coin?
Is the glass half full, or perhaps half empty?
Black, white, grey, or something in between?
An asset to be valued, or a liability to be scorned?

We take wild guesses (really, it is all we can do)
We assume (which makes an ass of you and me)
We have preconceived notions (and hang on oh, so tightly)

Then, disappointment
Further, disillusionment

No one truly knows
