Waiting is Excruciating (a poem)

Screen shot 2015-02-11 at 10.40.08 PMDon’t like what I witness, but I can’t set it right
Can’t stand what I’m seeing, but there’s no use to fight

Only partial perspective, but still hold an invective
Try to be understanding instead of demanding
Still, it’s *excruciating* to just sit here waiting

And the more I experience, the more that I see
For good and for bad, now it’s all clear to me
But if I said things were hopeless, then I’d be remiss
Not so, there’s more coming, so remember this:

I’ll get my own chance one day
To clear the path and create things my way
Rigid systems subside, and I’ll get that reward.
So, just try to patiently wait on the Lord

..and on yourself


“I waited patiently for the Lord;

and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.”

-Psalm 40:1
