Sitting, Waiting, Wondering
By She'Davia Williams
11:00 pm 11/02/08


You sit, and you wait, and you wonder
And you’re thinking
And you can’t come up with anything
Your thoughts are racing
There’s only one clear thought
But its not one that you should have
So you site, and you wait, and you wonder

And while you’re sitting, and waiting, and wondering
You figure out that that one thought
That one thought that you’re shouldn’t have
That you’re not supposed to have
Is the only one that will help you
And when you figure that out you still have to think some more
So you sit, you wait, and you wonder

Alas!
All of your sitting, and waiting, and wondering
Has come through for you
Everything you sat for is in this plan
Everything you waited for has come at last
Everything you wondered about has been revealed

Never again will you have to sit in fear
Never again will you have to wait for anyone’s help
Never again will you have to worry about what the future will hold

Never again will you have to sit down in a chair
Speaking everything that you never wanted to speak
Telling someone all of your feelings
Everything that you were afraid to say

Never again will you have to wait for the answer
Silently wanting them to tell you what to do
Patiently giving them time to come up with a solution
Something that would fix all of you imperfections

Never again will you have to wonder about tomorrow
Thinking up what will help you to move on
What will make all of this disappear
How you are going to make it through just on more day

You sat, and you waited, and you wondered
And it paid off.
