A 365 Daily Challenge: Day 16

Day 16
Topic: Expectations

Life line drawn towards the future
All matters work around you
Everything matters
To make them count

Eager to reverse the life line
To define your own path

Running in circles
Just to avoid the next step
When that fails
You paint your own way on the map
But in order to stay safe
You make sure you always paint 
A connection to the way out
Or honestly, the way back in

The expectations rise
Pushing your blood through
To make your outline clearer
You play connect the dots
On your forearm
In hope of finding paradise within them

It is not expected
Does not mix well with evolution
Paradise lost in the background

Then paradise found
Hidden within your bloodstream
All the way back to the starting point
When you pushed go

Where everyone expected you
To let go of your dream
And ignore the existence of the life line
