The Better Of Expected Results

Rewarding assumptions,
Or giving credence to hearsay...
Had not been my introduction,
To a way of life to leave me feeling...
Living it deluded would clear obstacles,
Off my path.

Although...
I will admit being stalled a few times,
Not intending to express empathy towards others.
However...
There were many times I needed a warm shoulder,
Close with a hug to provide.

And remembering that,
Left me to sit and chat with those still deciding...
Whether keeping their delusions alive,
Or keeping it real to survive...
Would deliver to them the better of expected results.
