I’m always waiting
Waiting for a better life
Hoping that tomorrow will fill in the blank spaces left by today
Waiting for a bad time to come or go
Hoping that good will follow
I’m always wishing for a better tomorrow
With a little hope to lessen my cynicism
I remain stuck in the forever of today
I’m searching for the oxygen of peace
But I’m suffocated by the unrest that is my life
I do not have the energy to run
Nor do I have the cowardice to hide
So maybe I should stop waiting

(2015)

Sometimes we need to do more with our own hands and stop waiting for things to be done by fates hand.

Fate is like a slow moving river. Sometimes it seems that it will never reach the sea.

Taking action is the best. Waiting for fate to come is watching our life fade away in the dust of the wind.

Sometimes by waiting, life passes by us unnoticed. Action is a good remedy.
