The waiting

Reflecting on life one day, this is what I saw.

The waiting

there is haste in this life
and time for beauty
time for reflection and care.

the darkness is near
and so are the stars
boundless mysteries unfold.

people in private minds all alone
the feast is in their famine
is there a power to deliver them?

look inside, heal spirit, body, mind
the energy is all inside you.
exploring uncharted boundaries
with joy and happenstance.

eating the fruits of your labor
blood and sweat and tears of life.
years will pass before you notice
the waiting.
