Waiting


I feel in my bones
wheel of time
slowing down
and wonder where
will it take me?
 
I want it to speed up
take me to happiness
Why am I condemned
to abject misery
or a vacuum?
 
I want it to go slow
if I see
disaster
looming
on the horizon
 
I want it
to reverse
when I think of
happy days
quickly rolled by
undervalued
unnoticed
why did I not know
it will not last forever
 
it happens again
as I fail to see
what’s happening
around me
I breathe
but fail to live
only to think what happened
when years
have rolled by
 
we wait
because
we fail to live
in the present
 
we wait
because
hope and fear
suspend
life

    we wait because
    hope and fear
    suspend life

    One is often rewarded by not being taken by uncertainties. Not being disturbed or confused in mind will offer more options as it tells us to think straight. Good option Reena!
