Waiting: A Poem

Updated on February 3, 2014

Sitting on a park bench waiting for life to move again,

Hoping for some clarity on the problems I face,

Will I find the results I was hoping for?

Or will I die somewhere in the middle waiting,

Hope breathes here between the past and the future,

But every inhale and exhale is strained,

Left here stagnant because of inertia,

Or some force that desires me to sit here waiting for brighter days.

      Waiting... Sometimes I would like to fall asleep, and be woken up, when it's all over. I hate the anticipation.

      Jodah: I struggle with waiting, because I don't have a lot of patience. That's true...sometimes we just have to wait before we get an answer. Thank you!

      We all have to just sit and contemplate sometimes and leave it to 'fate', "God' whatever. The answer or guidance will come to you eventually. Well written poem.

      Sometimes doing nothing is the best way.

      Haunting, sad, and very well written. Voted up.
