THE WAITING GAME

Survivors pain is never seen
while we play our waiting game.
It’s locked inside denied a voice
as it twists and turns and maims.

Two steps forward one step back
is how we play our waiting game.
Longing to walk in peace and love
with the fear and anger tamed.

The scars run deep the healings hard
when we play our waiting game.
We fight our battle from darkness to light
till the way ahead is plain.

We don’t need to forgive them
while we play our waiting game.
We just need some loving care
as we travel through our pain.

The wheels of time grind slowly
while we play our waiting game.
As fear dies, we learn to live our life
and gently find ourselves again.

  1. Waiting sucks the big one.
    The thing is not to wait and enjoy life until the waiting is done. I have posted something today about someone waiting for test results to see if they had cancer.
    They totally stopped living and are preparing to doe without even knowing if there is a cancer.
    LIVE every momment and don't waste any time waiting.

  2. Hey Walker, your post was very spooky 'cause I've got cancer & had surgery just last week.

    That why it's taken me so long to reply to your comment. And you're right I'm living every moment, even though it gets hard at times.

    Take care Walker and thanks for stopping by.
