Sit and Wait


Sometimes you sit and waitThere is nothing you can doWhen everything seems to be going wellthe other shoe dropsLeaves you wonderingIs it really worth it?You feel failure and despairDon't know where to turn or what to doYou feel the will leave through your fingertipsThe tears flow down your faceIs it really worth it....to fail?Everyone dies after allthere is no where to reach toNo one to pull you upIf you have used all your strength Do you just let go? Fall like a petal from a wilted flower...hit the ground and get swept away......join the petals that have left before you...reunite in the eternal garden......

Some of the answers to your questions are unknown until the wind picks up the petal and delivers it to the final destination.

The beauty can be in the sitting and the waiting. Don't forget to look around while you wait and you will see you are not alone.

Thoughful poem about a day-to-day existentialism all of us face throughout our lives. Well said.
